Unemployment rate in the U.S. isn't rising, amen to that. but still sucks that we are still at 10%, and 85,000 jobs were lost just in the past month.
The Obama administration is giving out $2.3 billion in clean energy manufacturing credits that will hookup 17,000 green jobs.
183 companies, including many focused on solar, wind, and energy management technology will receive a tax credit. An estimated 41,000 additional jobs will be added from the Five billion dollars in private investments.
$2.3 billion for green jobs is a lot of cheddar, but it's only a small part of the government's $787 billion emergency stimulus package. Ya heard!
