As an honors graduate of Princeton in econ no less, I've started to take a look at the report. Our employee was only talking about jobs in LA apparently. The report claims even more jobs.
-93,566 full-time equivalent jobs in California and betweenbetween 108,447 and 115,400 full-time equivalent jobs in the US.
Check this ridiculous claim out, "In all, the number of full-time jobs supported by the 2024 Games is more than the total number of private-sector jobs in the Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation industry
throughout all of Los Angeles County (83,131 jobs).â¸"
Now when you get to what a job is, it does say that 1 job for 12 months is the same as 12 jobs for 1 month. So i'd assume they are counting maybe something like 100,000 jobs for the 2 weeks of the Olympics. It's not clear to me what the time frame is.
So if you divide 100,000 by 26 (52 weeks divided by 2) then you'd get something like the equivalent of less than 4,000 jobs for one year.
Again, I can't find the time frame.
