This Project is to announce that Eco-friendly, Jobs, Employment & Training Inc.(DBA) E-JET, Inc is a non-profit green energy organization working in a collaborative effort with the community to help underemployed, low/middle class Individuals with Environmental, Employment, Education and Entrepreneur training initiatives for Green jobs of the future. Pat Brown, has been a long time advocate for the City of Cleveland, and has now entered into the economic/social/political arena(s) to make a positive change in the city, It has come to fruition and we feel that it is in time for us to become more effective in the service of our community, through our collaborative efforts.
Now Currently the under served community has high unemployment, disproportionate layoffs in addition to middle class families, that further widens the growing wealth gap. There are major Unemployment and Environmental concerns, as well. According to The recent citation from statistics there is a gap between the wealthiest Americans and those with the least making it difficult to enter into the middle class income status. Unemployment in the under served community is up to 15%, this is a sign that we need to take action. Cleveland, is 132nd in the highest unemployment rate in the Country, 7.5%. According to the Plain Dealer the Census data indicates that we have lost over 80,000 or 17.1% residents since year 2000. This has had a major impact in tax revenue, our local economy of the purchase and sells of goods and services. Thus, however, we have hope that small businesses and the Environmental Industry will restore the confidence of families wanting to live, work, and move back to the City of Cleveland.
In fact, in a recent article of the Bloomberg Business week, John Tozzi, writes Entrepreneurs, and small business owners created an estimate of 49% of the jobs from 2008-2010 and a 36% growth rate. However, we will be discussing the Green Job Industry in particular. Taken from a recent article that list the Ten Best Green Jobs for the Next Decade.
