Company picked for West Palm Beach energy plants

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - After a day long meeting Palm Beach County Commissioners picked 'Babcock and Wilcox' to begin construction on a waste to energy facility.

Before it's approval, the company was a mere recommendation, one that brought construction workers out to Jog Road Wednesday morning to protest.

Upset that Babcock and Wilcox promised 20 percent of it's jobs would be for skilled workers and 70 percent of it's hires would be unskilled.

The facility is expected to be up and running in 2015.
