Research Brief: The Urban Green Infrastructure Workforce: A Brief on Pay Differentials and Workforce Composition

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] This study examines the pay differential for urban green infrastructure occupations focused on installation, maintenance, and/or inspection as well as the differences in workforce composition by urban green infrastructure status. An original definition of urban green infrastructure jobs developed by Jobs for the Future as part of the NatureWORKS national initiative is used in this analysis. It focused on the broad research questions: Is there a pay premium or gap in urban green infrastructure, and how do worker characteristics contribute to the observed raw differential? To address these questions, we explored the impact of expanding the Mincer earnings equation to account for occupation fixed effects as well as measures of needed skills within occupation.
