2012 Olympics Create 30,000 Jobs and Counting

The 2012 Olympics in London -- a one month event three years away -- has already created nearly 30,000 construction jobs.

"Up to 30,000 construction jobs will have been created on the Olympic site in east London by 2012, according to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA)."

"The workforce on the Olympic park and Olympic village is expected to rise to 11,000 later this year, from the present level of 3,315."

"The ODA this morning announced an additional 250 apprenticeship opportunities on top of the 2,000 already pledged. Firms bidding for new contracts would have to ensure that at least 3% of the workforce are apprentices."
