You may have seen some of the news that talks about the potential of 2,000 new hires at Westinghouse. There is an awful lot going on in the industry. The NRC has a number of domestic nuclear power plants on their board for the first time in decades, China is bidding out who will build a generation worth of plants, Russia is talking about 25 new plants in the coming decade and Toshiba/Westinghouse has been looking at that business as well.. and now India. I hear that 2,000 number is pretty much their low end need for workers if they actually don't get some of these impending contracts. If they do get some of the bigger contracts out there I heard one person say recently it would be more like 1,000 new workers per month. That rate of job creation is probably not possible if for no other reason that the industry does not have that many ready workers out there.
