“Infrastructure investment stimulates economic growth, which strengthens communities. That economic growth brings more than jobs. It brings hope, happiness and stability….These pipelines are not just creating high-paying construction jobs. They are helping the Midwest and other parts of the United States to grow. That means more permanent jobs in manufacturing and other industries. Those jobs will support families and help stabilize communities that would otherwise have fewer new opportunities.”
-Ray Hipsher is a pipeline specialist with the Ohio Laborers’ District Council.
