Jobs Created by Recycling

Here is a great blog that analyzes the growth of green jobs in California, and why it's happening!

The State Economic Development Department recently completed a study on clean tech jobs in California, and the preliminary results show that shows AB 32 and recycling are driving green jobs growth. Currently, there are 500,000 jobs in the green jobs sector, which 3.8% of California's total employment. A quarter of these green jobs (approximately 125,000) can be attributed to recycling (including employees at recycling centers and manufacturers who produce products from secondary materials).
