New cold storage project at State Port bringing 100 jobs
An aging population also has driven job growth in many occupations that are not directly related to retirement planning and care. According to BLS Chief Regional Economist Martin Kohli: “The aging of the population is one of the factors that is driving the demand for massage therapists.” An aging population “is also a factor in the demand for coaches,” Kohli said. Many coaches work as instructors for leisure sports that retirees enjoy. The growing Hispanic population, in conjunction with expanding international trade, are also factors behind the rising number of interpreters and translators, according to the BLS and Kohli. But not all job growth can be explained by demographic shifts. For both petroleum engineers and service unit operators in the resource industry, the nation’s two fastest-growing jobs, growth likely is due largely to changes in the energy sector.

Upgrades to the port at Wilmington will help our farmers and agribusinesses boost that number even higher. The cold storage facility is a vital piece of infrastructure that our producers have needed for a long time, and Im happy that a public-private partnership will be able to make it a reality. We are committed to creating new jobs in Wilmington and know that USA InvestCo will become a strong corporate partner for us, said Representative Ted Davis. We applaud the USA InvestCo executives for their commitment to invest in North Carolina and expand their footprint in New Hanover County. USA InvestCo is just the kind of company we want to attract to Wilmington, said Senator Thom Goolsby. The cold storage jobs that theyll create will strengthen the port and be an example to others of the strong talent pool and attractive quality of life that characterizes Wilmington, New Hanover County and the state. USA InvestCo received assistance through a grant provided by the Golden LEAF Foundation to the N.C. Southeast Regional Economic Development Partnership to fund equipment needed for the proposed cold storage facility at the Port of Wilmington. The Port of Wilmington Cold Storage facility is a public-private venture in North Carolina.

The Recent Job Cut Done By The Barrick Gold Corporation (USA) (NYSE:ABX)
It is to be noted that before these suspension orders came the Barrick Gold Corporation deployed around 10,000 workers and the company never assumed that such problem will occur in the future. Does that mean the company has deceived its investors? If Barrick Gold Corporation (USA) (NYSE:ABX)s previous statements are to be believed they have said that they will not exceed the cost of production or the project set up but now because of the environmental regulations their cost have far exceeded of what was earlier thought. Does that mean the company has deceived its investors? This Pascua-Lama gold mine project seems to be thorn in the neck for the Barrick Gold Corporation and this environmental regulation acted as a final nail in the coffin for them.

Reshoring Bringing Back Jobs to USA
One survey by the Boston Consulting Group reported that 37% of large American employers were contemplating transfer of manufacturing from China to the U.S. Local U.S-based production is gaining ground on account of varied factors such as a lower logistics and inventory buffer, weaker dollar, lower transport costs and cheaper energy at home. Further, with wages going up over 15% each year in China along with stagnant pay in America, the wage differential is shrinking. In any case, the share of labor in total manufacturing costs has fallen to as low as 20% in some industries. In such a scenario, low wages are not vital any more for manufacturing widgets. While reshoring to manufacture small lots in America costs more, the benefits are realized in the form of better response to the consumer, real-time integration of inputs from R&D and marketing, increased goodwill and positive publicity in America.

USA Today: Keystone Job Cops
Outside evaluations of the likely job numbers look different; the State Department’s estimate is 5,000-6,000, and as Brainard explains: In September, researchers at Cornell University’s Global Labor Institute used the information in the EIS to come up with an estimate that was even more modest. Factoring in the various durations of employment, it calculated that “on-site construction and inspection creates only 5,060-9,250 person-years of employment (1 person-year = 1 person working full time for 1 year). This is equivalent to 2,500-4,650 jobs per year over two years.” The Republican Party wants the Keystone story to be about jobs, jobs and jobs. This is much easier to do when media outlets will print whatever they say without questioning it.
