Case closed: Obama green jobs program a failure

“President Obama’s green jobs training program, which was part of his stimulus, has failed on most key jobs measures, according to a new internal audit that found it was training workers who already had jobs that didn’t need green energy skills, and was failing to place new enrollees in jobs once they finished the training.

The Energy Department’s inspector general also said grantees who received the green jobs-training money did a poor job of reporting their results.

Only 38 percent of those who have completed training got jobs based on it, and only 16 percent kept jobs for at least six months — the key measure of success for the program.[Washington Times]

  2. where’s the surprise here?

  3. “Government jobs training” is as whimsical as “build it, and they will come.”

  4. “Obama green jobs program a failure”

  5. Obysmal’s “investments” in the magical power industry has had a 16% success rate (so far). For goodness sakes, a slot machine pays off at around 95% and the craps table pays off at around 98.6% and casinos are not healthy for your wallet. Perhaps he just has his template for choosing flipped over.
