The Rebuild America Act

The first thing we need you to do is sign this petition. It's for the Rebuild America Act that we initiated last week. There are 4,500 people who receive this weekly email, and even if just 10% of you sign that will bring us to 450 voices for these jobs bills (Harkin in the Senate, DeLauro in the House). Please help out - and tell your friends!

GOP Job Solutions Mean More Poverty, Fewer Jobs
Republicans across the country are pushing to cut unemployment benefits. As a result, we see more anxiety amongst workers who are unemployed for longer and longer periods of time - especially amongst older workers. But what would happen to the poverty rates and smalls businesses if the GOP get their way and unemployment benefits are cut?  Read this article to find out.

Latest News on Jobs from the People's World
To start off, how reforming Wall Street is a job for the American people; in Massachusetts: job creation up, unemployment down; and from Latina moms in Chicago: "Young people dying all around us because there are no jobs, because of poverty, injustice, foreclosures, lack of immigrant rights - but I'm done crying about it."

Remember to take action on our jobs bill petition!

In solidarity,
