Quietly, Government Stops Counting ‘Green’ Jobs

Citations

Carolina Journal quotes CEI`s John Berlau on the federal government`s `green job` promotion:

John Berlau, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., was also no fan of the effort to count green jobs. “It is inherently subjective because there is no standard definition of what a green job is. When an employment survey starts from the premise that some jobs are better than others, it is propaganda,” he told Bloomberg. In an interview, Berlau told CJ, “It is clear that there has been no lasting damage to the economy [from ending the BLS counting program]. Let’s go further and eliminate more so-called green job programs,” he said.
