ProgressiveCongress.org To Team Up With The Congressional Progressive Caucus To Announce Major Nationwide Summer Jobs Tour
Members of Congress and Workers To Announce The “Speakout For Good Jobs Now Tour” Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in 2456 Rayburn HOB
WHY: While the debate in Washington is all about deficit reduction, outside the Beltway all Americans want to hear about is the creation of good jobs. It is time for Congress to get this message.
We need both a plan to put people to work and action to make the economy work for the Middle Class once more. That will only happen if the voices of America’s working families are heard in a Washington dominated by entrenched corporate interests and big money politics.
It’s time for Congress to listen to the challenges the middle class faces in rebuilding The American Dream. Deficit reduction cannot come at the expense of good jobs and hope for the future. Now more than ever, Americans are struggling to make ends meet while CEOs are being rewarded for shipping American jobs overseas.
On Tuesday, at 8:30 a.m., Members of Congress and workers will announce a nationwide summer tour to promote good jobs that rebuild the American Dream. ________________________________________________________________________
