WXXI Business Report: Helping businesses find workers to fill "green jobs"

In this week’s WXXI Business Report: 

  • Federal legislation is estimated to help create more than one million jobs in the sustainability industry; but will there be enough workers to fill them?
  •  Paychex is laying off a relatively small number of employees in Rochester, as they “reprioritize” some positions. But the company says it’s also looking for people to fill other jobs. 
  • And a big expansion project at the UR Laboratory for Laser Energetics is expected to help attract more businesses to the region.
