Sarah Jaffe on Green Work or No Work

Does a “Green New Deal” make sense outside of America – or even within it?

Sarah Jaffe contrasts the demand for green jobs with the growing resistance to work in an extended interview from Planet B: Everything Must Change, a podcast series produced with Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung London.

The author of Work Won’t Love You Back talks to Dalia Gebrial about “good, green union jobs” and why there won’t be enough of them to go round, and explains why campaigning for a just transition starts with showing up on the picket lines.

For more about the future of work in the context of a global Green New Deal, catch up with episode one of Planet B and Dalia’s extended interview with Jeremy Corbyn.

Look out for more Planet B episodes and extended interviews in the weeks ahead of the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow (COP26).
