    The Pebble Project will provide thousands of safe, high quality career opportunities with potential earnings levels of $100,000 per year extending out 100-150 years. Alaska Income Tax payments in the hundreds of millions of dollars. And it will also immediately increase the earnings of Bristol fishermen as the Pebble employment opportunities compete for the available local workforce. Other than this, if you are fighting against Pebble, and driving a car, using a cell phone, have electricity in your home, etc., you may need to ask yourself if it’s a bit hypocritical to say, “No copper mining.” Thoughts??

      there is plenty of copper mineing its the ploy for actually wanti gold /silver ..with most mines labor is just that labor unless you hold some sort of degree ask workers from Fbks and Juneau mine .. were talking mine safety where do you get your figures from ? thousands of jobs nope ..

        Hi Randy, if you are really wanting to understand the employment opportunities the Pebble Project will generate vs. “…don’t confuse me with the facts, I have my mind made up…” just go to http://visual.ly/pebble-project-economics-employment . The true economic and jobs impacts are absolutely astounding.
