Green workers feel safe says Reuters

A recent Reuters survey indicate that green collar workers (about 68% of those who were polled) felt secured in their jobs because of heightened response in the past few years from government and business to the threat of climate change.

The Reuters' Carbon Salary Survey, conducted along with green sector recruiters Acre Resources and consultants Acona, polled nearly 1,200 professionals who work in areas like renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions trading.

The average green collar worker makes $76,000 per year, the survey showed, with half of respondents receiving an annual bonus of around $11,000. The other half received no bonus.
