Bloomberg: Construction Pay Seen Rising as Much as 30% from Keystone

“Building the Keystone XL pipeline would temporarily increase construction wages for some workers in three U.S. states by as much as 30 percent,” according to a new study by Bloomberg Government.

“Average construction wages in South Dakota where portions of a separate pipeline were built starting in 2008 rose 10 percent to 30 percent to more than $600 a week" the study says. "The same premium may apply for workers in certain Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska counties along the route of the planned XL pipeline connecting Hardisty, Alberta, and Steele City, Nebraska.”

After completion of the project, the study notes, this boost in wages is expected to return to normal.
