Apologies to those of you who've seen this 'Green Jobs' video already. If you haven't, you're in for a treat. It shows the House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) in no-prisoners mode, grilling the (clearly embarrassed and reluctant) Bureau of Labor Statistics Acting Commissioner Josh Galvin over what constitutes a 'Green Job.'
According to the Obama administration's generous definitions, 'Green Jobs' include:
college professors teaching classes on environmental studies, clerks at bicycle repair shops, antique dealer employees, Salvation Army workers because they are selling used clothing, stores selling rare books and manuscripts, consignment shop workers, used record shop employees, garbage disposal workers, and even oil lobbyists if they are engaged in advocacy related to environmental issues.
Doesn't that make you so proud what you're doing for the 'Environment' and the economy?
