Allegheny Conference Misstep

From The Tribune-Review:

The Allegheny Conference on Community Development said today it has formed an organization to create jobs by leveraging the region's energy resources.

Called the Energy Alliance of Southwestern Pennsylvania, the group will coordinate various local activities to foster energy innovation, production and manufacturing, it said.

Great, but the looming problem is a talent shortage in the energy industry. Review how Calgary, Alberta dealt with its energy boom. Or, talk to Westinghouse in Cranberry. What's the plan to attract workers? The ACCD isn't saying.
