Real workers with green jobs speak up

NRDC has been interviewing workers earning green paychecks in the new clean energy economy to help increase understanding of and support for clean energy investments and the policies we need to support them. This work builds on previous research showing that millions of Americans already have the skills that clean energy jobs require.

We teamed up with our friends at the Blue-Green Alliance to develop a short ad about BGA's support for federal climate policies. The ad features several workers who are members of the United Steelworkers and Communications Workers of America.

This ad will start running in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana later this week.

And we'll have some more great material to share soon, including profiles of several of the workers we interviewed.
