Prime Minister Kevin Rudd today announced a $100 million plan to create 50,000 green jobs and training opportunities, at the start of the three-day ALP national conference.
The announcement was the centerpiece of his speech to mark the start of the conference.
The Prime Minister outlined a plan to ‘green’ the workforce through a $94 million job creation and training program.
“The government will now create 50,000 new green jobs, traineeships and apprenticeships aimed chiefly at helping young Australians to obtain new skills during the downturn – new skills which will become highly applicable in the low carbon economy of the future,” Mr Rudd said.
