White House: Health and Green Jobs On Track.

A new White House report looks at jobs through 2016 and finds that the health and green job sectors are growing even with concerns over the stimulus package.

Ascociated Press reports:
"President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers said jobs ranging from technical record keeping to nursing and physical therapy will grow in the health fields and that greater spending on renewable energy and on a more efficient electrical power grid will spike employment in those sectors as well. The White House, seeking to calm domestic frustration, has insisted its plan would eventually boost millions of jobs. The CEA report stood by a prediction that the stimulus spending would save or create 3.5 million jobs by the end of 2010." See full article.
