November 12, 2009: Green Jobs For Those Who Really Need Them
This week Green Acre Radio gives us a story about the area's first green jobs training program. 19 newly skilled weatherization workers were trained by Laborers Local 242. The program is part of the movement to unite green jobs and clean energy with social justice. The City of Seattle's new hiring requirements will allow the graduates -- most of whom are from low income or disadvantaged backgrounds to begin retrofitting Seattle homes as soon as December 1st.
