Rust Belt to green jobs

This is precisely what the country needs. Renewable energy creating new jobs.

In the Rust Belt town of Newton, Iowa, the recently closed Maytag plant is now being used to build concrete towers for wind turbines. Another factory is building the massive turbine blades.

Jobs are coming back. Iowa has been called the “Saudi Arabia of wind energy.” In ten years, their economy could be booming. Let’s hope so. This is a double win. Renewable energy for the country and jobs in areas that desperately need them.
