The City of Oakland today announced the launch of its Green Job Corps. This is a new initiative designed to solve a few problems:

1) Generate jobs for low- and middle-income individuals;
2) Increase access to job training for these same folks;
3) Ensure Oakland sits at the forefront of the green jobs revolution.

It’s an inspiring first step, and one that’s poised to inspire other, similar legislation throughout CA and the nation. For Bright Green, it’s a great sign that the green jobs revolution is going to be an inclusive one–we’re proponents of a “bottom of the pyramid” approach to the green jobs movement, and convinced that it’s “the more, the merrier” as far as this movement goes.
