Depends On Political Perspective

The GOP asserts that the 1,700 mile pipline would create 22,000 new jobs. Democrats claim those numbers are inflated. That's about 13 jobs per mile, if my math is correct.

Meanwhile, San Fransisco Democrats tout 1.7 mile (you read that correctly - just under two miles) subway extension that, they claim, will create 43,000 jobs - almost twice as many as the entire Canada to Texas pipeline would create. This comes out to about 25,300 jobs per mile.

I'm sure those numbers aren't inflated at all! /s
