I have been in the American workforce for a bit now and it has taken me a bit of time to come to grasps with the job economy and how this translates into climate action. As an entrepreneur and co-founder I am really really lucky to have funds coming in to support projects that we believe in as BLI Global. But, bills have to be paid and this means a job has to be maintained.
I can say from real-life experience (which sounds so cliche) that it is not uncommon for folks across the pond to have two or three jobs just to make ends meet. I can also imagine that way back when, it was normal and ok to not give a second thought about where you worked as long as it put food on the table. However, these days, with young and old people alike being more concerned and conscious about the environment, there is a silent but massive exodus of workers away from traditional employment to more eco-friendly opportunities.
