Forum/Webcast: Green Jobs & Low-Wage Workers


Green Jobs and Low-Wage Workers

    • Kate Atkins, executive director, Garden State Alliance for a New Economy
    • C. Mijin Cha, director of campaign research, Urban Agenda
    • Karin Martinson, senior research associate, Center on Labor, Human Services, and Population, Urban Institute (moderator)
    • Jason Walsh, national policy director, Green for All
    • Others to be announced

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), the economic stimulus package passed in February, provides significant resources for developing environment-friendly “green jobs.” The act includes $48 billion overall for job training and education, nearly $100 billion for transportation and infrastructure, $20 billion in tax incentives for renewable energy, and more than $41 billion for energy-related programs. But it is unclear how green investments will benefit the country’s most vulnerable individuals: low-wage workers with limited skills. 

Be part of the conversation as our panel of experts seeks answers to such questions as

    • What are the characteristics of green jobs? Which jobs in this growing sector are relevant to low-skilled workers?
    • What are ARRA’s key features that will help low-income individuals access these jobs?
    • What should the federal government’s role be in promoting green development, particularly for low-income families?
    • What types of training will help low-skilled individuals get green jobs?
    • What should states and localities do to ensure that low-skilled workers benefit from the growth in green jobs?
    • What can we learn from localities’ experiences in establishing partnerships to develop green jobs?

At the Urban Institute

2100 M Street N.W., 5th Floor, Washington, D.C.

Light breakfast will be provided at 8:30 a.m. The forum begins promptly at 9:00.
