The New Worker Wears Green

Watch for the 2008 presidential race to strike a novel enviro-phrase: green-collar workers. Sen. Hillary Clinton is already using it in a bid to appear forward-thinking on what the global workforce will look like.

"She believes these are the tech jobs for the 21st century," says an aide about new jobs linked to the environment. "She thinks that every 15 to 20 years or so, America has to find a new growth sector to keep the economy growing," adds the aide, "like President Clinton did with tech in the 1990s."
