Seventy-five years ago, Pres. Roosevelt signed the executive order establishing the Works Projects Administration, the biggest public jobs program in U.S. history. Join unemployed people, trade unionists, community and youth activists and organizations from all over the country on Saturday, May 8 in Washington, D.C. to call for a real jobs program for the 30 million unemployed and underemployed people in the U.S. today.


We will protest at the Labor Dept. and then meet to plan our next steps. Joblessness is the number one crisis today. Yet, from Wall St. to Washington, bankers and politicians are determined to ignore this reality. After wasting trillions on bailing out bankers and waging wars, the only thing they want to talk about is cutting social programs, laying off more workers, busting unions and causing more misery and suffering. If we don't unite, and raise hell, hell on earth is what we'll have. In 1935, it took a mass struggle to win a jobs
program.

Join us on May 8 to start a fight for a jobs program right now.

 

 

JOBS NOW!

  • What would a Real Jobs Program look like?
  • The Local Jobs For America Act - HR 4812 - where is it at?
  • ORGANIZING THE UNEMPLOYED
  • THE NEED FOR A JOBS PROGRAM FOR YOUTH
  • Reports from local campaigns to fight for jobs
  • SHOULD ORGANIZED LABOR CALL FOR A MASS MARCH FOR JOBS IN D.C.?
  • How the fight for jobs is also a fight against anti-immigrant racism, the racist Arizona anti-immigrant law and the "Tea Party".
  • Fighting for a moratorium on foreclosures and to extend unemployment benefits
  • MORATORIUM ON LAYOFFS & WORK PLACE CLOSINGS
  • Forging unity in the fight for the right to living-wage jobs
