Obama's green jobs program still falling far short of goals
More than three years after the 2009 stimulus law was enacted, President Barack Obama's $500 million green jobs program is still falling far short of its goals, the Labor Department's inspector general concludes.
An audit found that as of last June 30, a total of more than 81,000 workers and unemployed job seekers had completed training under the program, at a cost of about $328 million. But auditors found that only 38 percent, some 30,857, had gotten new jobs or kept jobs with their employers.
