"We Rounded Up the Jobs a Bit..."

Lemmeeesseee heah, Gomer...

Although they are touted and promoted by policy makers and opinion leaders across the state, accurately defining and keeping track of ‘green jobs’ has proven nearly impossible in Wisconsin.

That's McIver's lead--and it's far too kind to the Doylet bunch.


In all, at the time of our search, the database claimed 7,632 jobs among the eight manufacturers that were current primary suppliers to the wind industry. Yet, the MacIver News Service was only able to identify 31 jobs at those companies which were specifically tied to wind energy related products.

When in doubt, multiply the actual number by about 250.
