Green Jobs Scandal

 Big labor is a driving force behind the effort to have the government fund “green jobs.”  In Spain, a similar effort was a complete and total disaster.  And now it appears we are heading toward the same result.

The Associated Press reports that “After a year of crippling delays, President Barack Obama’s $5 billion program to install weather-tight windows and doors has retrofitted a fraction of homes and created far fewer construction jobs than expected. In Indiana, state-trained workers flubbed insulation jobs. In Alaska,Wyoming and the District of Columbia, the program has yet to produce a single job or retrofit one home. And in California, a state with nearly 37 million residents, the program at last count had created 84 jobs.”  Another big labor driven taxpayer boondoggle.
