Green jobs continue to grow in the U.S., offering solutions to help mitigate both economic and environmental challenges
Just as importantly, the report’s findings are optimistic about the future. Not only is job creation on the rise, but the green jobs that are building America’s green economy are jobs that can help to mitigate many of our economic and environmental challenges. For example:
The green economy is manufacturing and export intensive.
- Green jobs offer better pay for low- and middle-skilled workers than the national economy as a whole.
- The growth of green jobs and their financial impact has been observed nationwide.
In closing, the report cites a number of ways to help keep the momentum of green job growth going, most critically by supporting businesses that create those jobs.
