WindmillsWithin the next ten years, more than 14 million Americans could find themselves in green collar employment-- believe it or not, that's comparable to current numbers of manufacturing jobs. The US Green jobs movement is still very young, but cities across the country are finding real job growth there. With talk of a Green City on Blue Lake, local leaders have wanted Cleveland to get on the Green bandwagon--so, what do we have to show for it? And when will we see more growth? Join us for answers, Wednesday morning at 9 on 90.3.
