Hundreds Turn Out for Energy Jobs at Navajo Worker Job Fair

Hundreds Turn Out for Energy Jobs at Navajo Worker Job Fair

June 26, 2019

It’s a story the radical eco-left doesn’t want you to see.

Earlier this month, about 250 people showed up looking for job opportunities in many sectors including energy, at a job fair hosted by Navajo Transitional Energy Company (NTEC.)

According to the article in Native News Online:

The job fair started at 9 a.m. but nearly 100 people were lined up at 7:30 a.m.

“We started taking applications earlier than we planned because people were eager to submit resumes and get information about job vacancies,” said Cortasha Upshaw, NTEC community coordinator.

Providing strong jobs in rural areas of the country is a keystone of the energy industry. However, the imminent closure of the Navajo Generating Station and the mine that feeds it have left hundreds looking for work. Despite the economic and personal turmoil caused by the lost jobs, the eco-left cheers the closure.

In the aftermath workers from Native American communities are scrambling for new opportunities:

NTEC organized the job fair to provide potential employment opportunities for workers from Kayenta Mine and Navajo Generating Station since both operations are scheduled to close later this year. The closure means the loss of hundreds of well-paying jobs in the Kayenta and LeChee areas.

Even after the job fair concluded, people, who had taken time off from work, were still showing up.

Just like in other parts of the country, the eco-left who cheers the closure of reliable energy facilities are nowhere to be found when it comes to cleaning up the chaos left behind.
