The boom in clean energy jobs in Massachusetts continues, with another 11.8% growth in the last 12 months, and now 79,994 there. That total is just direct jobs and does not include indirect and induced.
Let's put the Massachusetts 79,994 clean energy jobs total in context. It is considerably more direct jobs than has been created in Pennsylvania by the Marcellus boom. In fact, 30,000 direct jobs have been created by gas production in the Commonwealth, according to the Corbett Administration.
Yet, another reason Pennsylvania ranks 49th in job creation is the Corbett's administration neglect or hostility of clean energy jobs.
