A-Cup: Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!

New, 8 comments

?what really excites city officials about the America’s Cup is its potential to inject an estimated $1 billion into the local economy and create upwards of 8,000 jobs.In a year when job-creation is a mantra as much as a goal, more details about hiring for the America's Cup race are being revealed. It's hard to tell where job-continuation and job-creation begin and end, but the goals are laudable, and presumably some of the estimated 8K people who are suddenly unemployed in October, 2013 will have had a life-changing experience. Plus unemployment benefits. [City InsiderSG Gate]
