PG&E: Hirings (and Layoffs?)
I was surprised to read that the new power plant being built at King Salmon is supposed to be operational by next summer. I guess the jobs related to that construction won't last as long as I'd thought. I was thinking at least five years.
But rumor has it, and I stress the word RUMOR, PG&E won't be keeping the operators of the current power plant on. They'll be replacing them since it would cost too much to retrain them, if that makes any sense.
That's second or third hand information the wife related to me via a brother- in- law that is one of the current operators and has been for over 20 years. I just asked her again if he was still supposed to be laid off and she said they're not sure about anything yet.
I have a hard time believing that and suspect it's a rumor started somewhere, but I guess you never know.
