Electric buses = more good, union jobs for low-income Californians

While the creation of new, clean economy jobs is booming, not all clean energy workers—particularly blue collar workers—thrive in these new jobs. Too often, many do not earn a living wage that can take care of their families; many do not receive healthcare benefits and many do not have adequate safety protections at work. Worse yet, people of color and residents from low income and disadvantaged communities do not always get access to these new jobs.
