Part of language? --Connel MacKenzie 18:55, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Judging from b.g.c. results for various searches involving the phrase, I'd say the phrase is definitely in use, but seemingly not with any specific sense; in some cases it means "pertaining to a rural job" (as opposed to an urban blue-collar job at a factory), in others it means "pertaining to a job dealing with the environment", in others it means "pertaining to a job at an eco-friendly workplace" (which seems to be the most common use, but none of these is terribly common), in one it means "pertaining to the cultivation of marijuana" (which, BTW, is the only use I can find that makes it clear it's using an existing term, rather than a possible independent coining), in a few it means simply "pertaining both to a job and to the environment" (especially in the phrase "green-collar crime", which is when a company violates environmental laws). Some of these senses might meet CFI individually; others not. I think it might make sense to give a vague definition, with examples of various kinds of uses. —RuakhTALK 17:18, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Striking this, as it's been cited without comment for almost a month. —RuakhTALK 18:13, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

RFV passed. I don't think a table could be considered running text, but there are enough quotations without it. DAVilla 19:45, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
