To listen to the full episode of Good jobs, clean economy: Pushing for a Just Transition, please tune into Needs No Introduction.
Speaking to joint climate and labour demands and the idea of a Just Transition, Kirkpatrick says:
“Blue Green and a number of allies have been advocating… the idea of buying clean… You’re keeping people employed here at home. You’re keeping plants up and running… It’s 100 per cent about keeping jobs, reducing the carbon, building our a future together… If everyone is struggling to get by, you are living paycheck to paycheck and if that paycheck disappears, you’re in deep trouble. And that’s why we talked about the care economy… the importance of good union jobs and all of these things that don’t always necessarily seem to be connected, but they very much are… Change is inevitable, but justice is not.”
