Earlier this week, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis joined Vice President Joe Biden and Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan to discuss the $4 billion in additional funding that will go towards providing green jobs training.  Secretary Solis also discussed clean energy and green jobs in a post on the official White House blog.

“Investments in the green economy can revitalize old industries, create new industries and generate new jobs for our workforce. These are jobs that will stay in the United States and cannot be outsourced. They will help pave a pathway out of poverty; strengthen urban and rural communities.”  Source: The White House Blog

Head on over to the official website of the White House to read the post in its entirety:  Green Jobs and a New Foundation.  The entry is also translated into Spanish and Chinese (PDF).
