Green jobs survey killed as US prepares Government-wide cuts

Tuesday, March 05, 2013
The move is a harbinger of the program cuts that may occur Government cuts, about the request for the $85 billion in the entire Board of Directors known as sequestration, for the current financial year from US.Their cumulative effect will be not immediately obvious.
"Sequestration is finally swinging into force tomorrow causing flutter flags, soldiers, barefoot and balls in the air, pause to stop" Yair Reiner, analyst at Oppenheimer & co. in New York, said in a note to investors yesterday.

"Well, not exactly" pure said. "As big and painful as the sequestration cuts are likely to be, its impact weeks, months and in some cases takes years to play out."
Barack Obama administration remain Congress and President far apart, how to start the cuts, part of $1.2 trillion in linear spending cuts this year and will be spread over nine years to replace.

Defense programs will absorb half of the cuts. The Pentagon has warned that more than 750,000 civilian employees to take unpaid leave with on average one day per week in furloughs, which would start April 25 can be forced. Today the Defense Department Manager lists of the essential staff send them suggest what by the furloughs.
Effects of Defense

"Not everything that is day one, happen," Pentagon spokesman George Little reporters yesterday. "But we have some very fast decisions on programs that we may again pare."
The biggest decline since 1972 after the Viet Nam war fell defense spending by 22 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. The cuts are very much felt.

"It absolutely affected us," said Kenneth Moore, a Vice President of Advatech Pacific Inc., a closely held engineering company based in San Bernardino, California, in an interview.
Earlier this year expected to Advatech Pacific in an order of $400,000 for military communications equipment to share. The contract yet still not been let and was cut to "a fraction", Moore said. A third to a half of Advatech Pacific workers encountered, he estimated delays in payment or non-working days without pay.

Loss of jobs
Sequestration cost could be more than 2 million jobs, with about half from defense workers, contractors and their suppliers, according to an estimate in September of Stephen Fuller, an economist with George Mason University Center for regional analysis in Arlington, Virginia.

"The furloughs that what could happen until April, because of the need, hints for the workers concerned offer take place would not" fuller said in an interview yesterday. "Tomorrow or next week will notice the most noncitizens are there a sequester as what is in the newspaper or on television."
In a Feb. 26 E-mail to staff said the Ministry of labour statistics unit a clean energy survey, which included everything from oil lobbyists for drivers of hybrid buses according to the Republicans, would be one of three data reports aborted because of the cuts, according to the person, not identified because the announcement was not official.

Gary Steinberg, a BLS spokesman, referred questions to the Ministry of labour to the discontinued data reports. Labour spokesman Steve Barr is not responded to a request for comment.
'Great loss'

The BLS discontinue reporting on collective redundancies and international comparisons, and trim spending on travel, bonuses and training.
Disappointed clean energy cuts proponents of the wind to say, are the fastest-growing in the United States the Department published its first industry survey in 2012 at least 3.1 million Americans had to find green jobs solar and other renewable energy industries.

"It's a big loss," said bracken Hendricks, senior fellow at the Center for American progress, wrote a book on green energy. "This means that the United States will be flying blind on the growth of a very, very important in the US economy."
If the clean energy growth rate of the other segments of the economy exceeds industry, it still fall short of Obama's goal to set jobs – a point Republican government efforts have stressed at the assault on the economic recovery.

Green energy
During the 2008 campaign, Obama said that 5 million jobs could produce green energy about a decade. Stimulating the economy in 2009, about 90 billion $ in the form provided by loans, grants and tax breaks for clean energy programs, created by the year 2010 the White House has said about 225,000 jobs.

John Berlau, senior fellow at the competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market research group in Washington, said cutting the programs "Way" and said their absence "leave the Americans no poorer people would."
"It be inherently subjective because that is no standard definition of what for a green job", said Bailey. "If a survey of employment from the premise, start that some jobs are better than others, this is propaganda."

Republicans, including representative Darrell Issa of California, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, criticized the Administration for the promise of renewable energy as a source of new jobs advertising.
"This never a real report, but rather propaganda was designed to a misleading political narrative ahead", Issa said in via e-Mail statement. "From the outset it was a misuse of taxpayer money and it is a pity, that it took which sequester the Administration make it to realize that."
