Table 3: Jobs in and resulting from the Weatherization Program

Since we believe the current workforce is considerably larger and, because it is lower-paid than the wages assumed in the BEA models, the number of newly-employed—employees of the Weatherization program and their contractors—is likely to be at least between 12,000 and 15,000 higher. The indirect jobs in related industries will remain as predicted.

Ready to Work? Hundreds of W.A.P.’s private contractors have the equipment needed for the program, and their employees have some W.A.P. training but are not fully employed. We cannot quantify this “slack” in the system.

Programs will be stocking up on the equipment their expanding crews and contractors will need to perform the required tests and installations, from insulation blowers and scanners to heavy-duty trucks and vans.

A plan for a staged expansion of training resources to get thousands of highly trained auditors ready to supervise even more technicians as they acquire the essential skills would be developed while the initial conventional investments are well underway.
