Two Dozen More Green Jobs!

We're plus 24 thanks to the new green economy we were promised. Yet, for some reason, John Stossel is not impressed.

Institutions like Summit Academy use stimulus money for their “results-oriented programs” that “empower adults” to “become educated, employed, contributing members of their community.”

Your money is being used to teach building weatherization skills; problem is, there seems to be little demand for these newly trained weatherization workers.

130 people have been through Summit's new weatherization program. But just a couple dozen have landed jobs.

If only there were some other way to connect workers with professions that people really wanted. There must be some way to do it.

We're from the government, and here to help. Posted by John Kranz at December 7, 2009 1:21 PM
