South Texas Project Units 3 and 4 to Drive Soaring Demand for Skilled Craft Labor in Greater Houston Area, a "Navigating the Currents of Change" Webcast on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Demand for skilled craft man-hours in the Greater Houston market is expected to double by 2013, which means that large capital projects like the South Texas Project units 3 and 4 will require a large percentage of out-of-market labor for their projects, Lamar Blanton, manager of Industrial Info's skilled craft labor group, said in an exclusive "Navigating the Currents of Change" interview. He estimates that between 25% and 45% of the 6,000 skilled craft laborers who will be needed to work on the South Texas Nuclear Project (STP) units 3 and 4 will have to come from outside the Greater Houston labor market.
