Though millions of Americans are out of jobs, corporate-funded politicians are attacking worker rights and slashing public services, instead of addressing the jobs deficit.
Why? It's simple: political payback to the same Wall Street and corporate CEOs that pushed millions of Americans out of jobs and homes, got bailed out and are back to making record profits. The corporate greed agenda wants a permanent "jobless recovery" to continue concentrating wealth at the top, leaving the rest of us to fight over what's left. These corporate-backed politicians have other proposals that will lower wages, decimate public education, hang teachers out to dry by weakening or eliminating their right for fair treatment and due process on the job. Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio are the frontlines today, but this program will soon be showing across the country, if we don't stop them.
Now is the time to join the fight for Full and Fair Employment, quality public education, good jobs, strong communities, advanced manufacturing, a green economy and ... the American Dream! Contact: www.jwjpdx.org 503-236-5573 for more information
"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans such as 'right to work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining... We demand this fraud be stopped."- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
