Here’s the deal. There are jobs and there is bullshit. Adding an adjective in front is irrelevant. If recycling tofu to make hybrid cars could derive a positive rate of return on investment then there would be people employed at tofu recycling / hybrid car plants. They wouldn’t be green jobs they’d just be jobs.
Rhymes with Cars and Girls has a good definition…and many more.
green jobs (n.): A category of employment properly viewed as belonging to the realm of mythology or fantasy, like the chimera, leprechaun, or centaur; jobs not tangibly observable in the real world but existing in the dreams of ‘progressives’. This recovery will be fueled by green jobs.
