Welcome to Green Futures LA
August 1, 2011
CNN posted an article today that’s directly on topic for the launch of Green Futures LA! You can read the article here. At Green Futures LA we hope to assist local community colleges with the challenging work of bridging the widening skills gap in America’s labor force. With such historic unemployment it’s nothing short of a tragedy that lack of education and underdeveloped job skills are keeping workers out of the green economy. There is still demand for labor in this country. Job seekers just need to hone the skills and knowledge base required to fill those jobs. America will never be the manufacturing powerhouse that it once was, but we can and will spearhead the green revolution. The old jobs are never coming back, but the new ones are already here. America’s strength has always been innovation. Somewhere down the line we lost sight of that and became complacent. Unprecedented growth in the emerging “green sector” is our best hope for a return to economic prosperity. At Green Futures LA we hope to contribute to this recovery by training a workforce that is job-ready to meet the labor needs of green employers.
