Western PA voters weigh in [View all]

The Post-Gazette has a series of dispatches from western PA "Trump Country" voters. Read it and weep.

Here's the thing specifically in Beaver county, Shell is pouring billions (with a B) into a new ethane cracker plant. The plant won't be operational for a few years yet and just yesterday was approved for a conditional use permit. The site prep is unlike anything I have ever seen in my lifetime although I'm sure when the mills were being built it was similar. There are jobs for all the skilled trades, plus civil engineers and engineers of all types that are going to outsiders because there aren't enough local qualified individuals to fill them. Even if Trump would magically create some jobs, I'm skeptical that any of the interviewees would even be qualified to get them.
