TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress 'America Wants to Work'

Source: NYSUT Communications

The jobs crisis is urgent and demands action now.

This week, the AFL-CIO - one of NYSUT's national affiliates - is mobilizing activists to hold lawmakers accountable for putting America back to work.

The initiative will bring unionists and other working people together in hundreds of events through Oct. 16 to demand action from Congress to promote a real jobs creation agenda.

Go online to find an America Wants to Work action near you and for information on the Oct. 12 America Wants to Work National Teach-In.

You also can sign an America Wants to Work petition to Congress or send a free fax to Congress online with NYSUT's legislative action page.
