Green-Collar Jobs in America’s Cities: Building Pathways out of Poverty Careers in the Clean Energy Environment

Posted by Chad Bullock - On October 26, 2009 (EST)

This is a guide for cities to enhance one critical component of America’s shared prosperity: Training and employing people for the higher wage, family-supporting careers in the new clean, green, energy efficient job sectors. This city guide makes a strong case that pursuing a four-step strategy – essentially a metropolitan green business and jobs development plan – provides a wealth of environmental, economic, and social benefits, including what it calls “a pathway out of poverty” for thousands of unemployed, under-employed, and hard to employ people in disadvantaged neighborhoods. The report was prepared by the Apollo Alliance, Green For All, Center for American Progress and the Center on Wisconsin Strategy.
