    It is estimated that between the years 2000 and 2020 the Tar Sands will provide 42,000 full time jobs.

    The cumulative impact on employment though is much larger, which is estimated to be 174,000 full time jobs.

    Thousands will be employed by the direct excavation, shipping, processing and refining and selling of oil in the Alberta Tar Sands, but hundreds of thousands of jobs will be created to support that effort, meaning these workers will buy houses, healthcare, food, etc. and that will create or sustain many jobs.
