"He's not helping us and I don't know of any unions that he's helped so far in other trades."

Fox Business Network's Carley Shimkus visited Bald Knob, Arkansas to interview workers affected by President Biden's harmful executive order to halt the KeystoneXL pipeline. Nearly three months after Biden's decision, workers and their families are hurting.

Here are some onsite quotes from the report:

"It's hard to make plans when you've got an administration that's trying to crush your future."

"I've looked for them green jobs and they are not there."

"I lost probably $60,000 - $80,000 not being able to go on that job. That's my livelihood. If I'm not working, I'm barely scraping by. I've got two kids to support, what am I supposed to do there?"

"My whole family is unemployed."

"The middle class is standing right here and looking at him [Biden] and telling him, 'we're hurting, and we need jobs.'"

"He's not helping us and I don't know of any unions that he's helped so far in other trades."
