    ATLANTA — The Southern Co. believes it can break ground on the country's first nuclear plant in 30 years, but it will need a new generation of workers to run it.

    Plans for building a wave of nuclear reactors would create a need for 12,000 to 21,000 new workers ranging from specially trained maintenance crews to nuclear physicists and engineers. The need for labor is compounded since more than a third of the country's existing nuclear workers will be eligible for retirement in four years.
    Power companies have submitted 17 applications to build and operate nuclear reactors across the country, from Texas and Michigan to Missouri and South Carolina.

    And we are not talking any jobs, but good ones.

    Democrats have to be excited. Especially engineers and scientists.

    I think they may want people who can spell.... so that's rdean crapped out then. Last time I checked the correct spelling was Republican, not Republcians.

    Why don't Blue states advocate nuclear power? NYS wants to shutdown the one that provides 1/3 of NYcity's power.

    For "Smart" people Dems are really fucking retards

    What is the "life expectancy" of a nuclear power plant? None have been built for thirty years. I didn't see your "link" that gave a reason. Did you forget to post it?

    Because Republicans are no good at "science" or "engineering"?

    You're welcome. Must be embarrassing to need some far right whackjob pointing out basic spelling mistakes to the uber smart liberal.

    Personally, I don't look down on people who do jobs like truck driving and laboring. They add as much value, often more, than smart people. For thousands of years, we lived without scientists, but we've always needed people who could actually do stuff.

    Interestingly, many of those whose jobs you look down on are minorities too. I guess that makes you a racist.
