Labor-climate advocates in Connecticut have just proposed a Climate and Community Investment Act. Modeled on a similar bill in New York, its goal is to be sure green jobs created in Connecticut are good jobs, and that they are filled by Connecticut workers. Advocates describe it as an economic relief bill. At its core is an apprenticeship/pre-apprenticeship workforce development program designed to create a strong clean technology workforce. The bill has support from the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs and allies in the building trades unions
