From the Washington Examiner:

The conservative R Street Institute released a white paper last fall titled “Is the sun rising in solar protectionism?” R Street reported that while there are more than 260,000 Americans employed in the solar industry, the two companies pushing for tariffs, including the Gallogly-financed SolarWorld, employ fewer than 1,000. R Street’s analysis further showed that if the price of solar cells went up due to the tariffs Gallogly and others are calling for, “approximately 88,000 solar jobs are in jeopardy.” Once other manufacturers who use solar cells are factored in, the job losses could be even worse.
