    potential job loss in Gulf of Mexico = moratorium

    about 120k jobs are directly lost due to drilling moratorium and these are jobs that pay about 90k a year. one of these jobs supports about four other jobs in the gulf. so simple math indicates a loss of about 600k jobs if moratorium stays for 6 months. if they move the rigs out of the gulf they won't be back for years. the spill is a disaster but the moratorium is even worse for the people of the gulf.
