Chicago Green Jobs


Game On!

The Obama administration just plunked down $80 billion in green investment and tax cuts – 10% or so of the final stimulus bill – in a bid to show that environmentalism can save both polar bears AND American jobs. No doubt our very own Mayor Daley will make sure that Chicago gets a piece of the stimulus pie, and the smart money is that some of those funds will go to keeping Chicago on the path to becoming America’s Greenest City.

As a recent transplant from San Francisco and a green professional, I’m watching to see how the push for green jobs unfolds here in my new city.
