Green Jobs That Pay Big Bucks

Green Collar Jobs

Forget white collar jobs. The big money is in green collar work. In March of last year, Vice President Biden claimed that Americans currently making $40,000 a year could increase their salary to $100,000 or more just by attending green training programs. Many doubted the numbers and chalked it up to typical Biden bluster. Yet, there may be some basis to his claim after all. According to a 2009 Carbon Salary Survey, affiliated with Thomson Reuters, green workers earn more than $75,000 a year on average worldwide, and approximately $100,000 in America. Not to mention some sweet end-of-the-year bonuses. Photo Credit: cHappy! a.k.a
