Green jobs and Green Business are two powerful forces, and many influential business and political leaders believe that the Green Economy will create millions of new jobs, lead us out of recession and, in the process, transform our economy into a 21st century engine of prosperity.
On the other hand, there is also much hype about this phenomenon and it is critical to analyze what is really happening. A massive economic transition does not happen overnight. Training and hiring millions of workers for green jobs demands time, financial investment, and an adjustment of expectations about the very look and feel of a 21st century labor force that is encouraging sustainable change.
