Manufacturers and Cal Lutheran University's Bill Watkins to release green jobs report

Study finds that California's economy would weaken if state sacrifices existing job base to reach green job goals

 June 15, 2010 Sacramento, CA -- On Wednesday, June 16, at 10:00 a.m. the California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) will hold a statewide media teleconference to release and discuss a green jobs study -- The Truth About Green Jobs and California -- recently completed by Bill Watkins, Ph.D. of Cal Lutheran University.
