A recent I Mua Rail commercial titled "Local Jobs" suggests that the Honolulu rail project has generated a wealth of local jobs. The commercial touts the rail as benefitting Honolulu because it employs "many" University of Hawaii graduates.

"Rail has given many UH graduates like myself the opportunity to stay home and work," says one man featured in the spot, an engineer who's identified as Brandon Silva.

Civil Beat has previously reported about the number of local jobs created by the rail project. But how many of them are UH grads?

Have feedback? Suggestions?
