This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-10-8-21: Green Jobs

Written by

Ohio workers stand to win big when thousands of new green energy jobs are created through the proposed federal infrastructure bill-if and when it gets passed by Congress.

But how good will those jobs be?

US Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH -13) joined with labor leaders from the United Steelworkers (USW), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and the BlueGreen Alliance this week, to talk about how and why those new "green" jobs, should go to well-trained, and well paid Union workers.

They were responding to a new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council, which is calling for immediate action on climate change, but with "robust labor standards".

Listen now, to find out why.
