For a new utility construction project, is it appropriate to include fixed in-house embedded labor as part of industry sales input event in an industry change activity? There is no industry change since the labor already exist and is being paid on an ongoing basis.
In other words, the utility labor is fixed/embedded and creates no new economic development. Should their cost be included as industry sales input? I am worried this will overstate employment, labor income, and total output for the construction project.
