GREEN JOBS--DO THEY LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS? [13 December 2013]
 
 
An Austrian study challenges assumptions that ‘green’ jobs, those that have an element of environmental protection or sustainable management of resources, are largely high-quality, middle-class occupations. The study, commissioned by Austria’s Chamber of Labour, examines the quality of work likely to be offered by such jobs and questions whether they will be a key potential source of new employment and sustainable economic growth, as is often claimed in current public debate.
