Clean Energy Jobs Leaving Women And Blacks Behind

The obvious answer is that the Cult of Climastrology must force women and blacks to work clean energy jobs, whether they want to do them or not. We could run a lottery, and pick the names of those who will be required to work them

As clean energy jobs grow, women and Black workers are at risk of being left behind

Women and Black workers are vastly underrepresented in the clean energy workforce, an industry that pays higher-than-average wages and is the fastest-growing source of jobs in the U.S., according to a new report by a coalition of energy organizations.

Clean energy jobs, which range from creating electric cars to making buildings more energy efficient, are transforming the nation’s economy, but they are predominantly filled by white men, with Latino workers mostly stuck in entry-level positions and women and Black workers underrepresented in the industry overall, according to the report by a coalition of organizations including the Alliance to Save Energy and the American Association of Blacks in Energy.

“Congress and state lawmakers need to do more to make sure people of color aren’t left behind in what is shaping up as the biggest economic transition in recent history,” says Bob Keefe, executive director of E2, a nonpartisan group that supports initiatives benefiting the environment and economy, and one of the report’s authors. “So far it’s been white workers, particularly white men, who’ve benefited from this tremendous opportunity.”

What will law makers do? Will they simply require that “clean energy” companies hire a certain percentage of women, blacks, and Latinos, regardless of credentials? People have to actually know what they’re doing, and, so far, it’s mostly 1st World whites who care about the climate crisis scam, and women tend to avoid construction jobs, as always. There’s always a lower percent of females, just like women dominate the pre-k and kindergarten occupations. Childcare work. Social workers. And others.

In clean energy fields where they are most represented, women have fewer than 30% of the jobs, though they fill almost half of jobs across industries nationwide, the report says.

Meanwhile, Black workers have the biggest gap of any racial group between their representation in clean energy jobs and their numbers in the broader U.S. workforce, the report says. They make up roughly 8% of clean energy employees, though they are about 13% of U.S. workers overall.

Latino employees make up almost 17% of clean energy workers, just slightly below the 18% of jobs they hold in the broader U.S. workforce. But they tend to be concentrated in entry-level construction positions, “jobs that are some of the first to get cut when things get bad,” Keefe says.

That inequity was on vivid display during the COVID-19 pandemic, which also led to Black and Latino workers being disproportionately laid off in sectors like hotels and restaurants when businesses were shuttered to slow the spread of the virus.

What if they don’t want to work in the field? A lot of those Latinos working as construction are here on visas (and many are here illegally, and might have DACA status), and are doing the same thing they do with house construction. One actually needs the knowledge and education to do the higher end stuff. If women, blacks, and Latinos are not getting, how would they do they jobs? Right, right, we force them to learn this stuff, rather than college degrees ending in “Studies”. Including this who “inequality” thing highlights the reality that this has little to do with science.

    So, men, primarily white men, are more heavily involved in engineering, manufacturing and construction, and this is just horrible. But somehow, some way, no one seems upset that women now outnumber men, fairly significantly, in college. Why, it’s almost as though the two sexes — and there are only two, save for a few ‘intersex’ birth defects — tend to choose their career paths differently.

    Obviously, the answer is to force businesses to hire more “no-show” employees just to raise their stats. Other solution is for all the white guys to declare they are black hispanics. Fixed.
