Jay Inslee wants to save the planet and unions at the same time
Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee just unveiled what he calls the Evergreen Economy Plan, a blueprint for significant new investments in infrastructure, clean technology and green jobs. He would spend $300 billion a year in federal funds building a green economy, spending he says would leverage twice as much in private spending, for a total of $900 billion a year.
While much of what’s in his plan is the kind of thing you think of when you hear “green jobs,” Inslee also includes proposals to reshape the American workplace.
