While the debate in Washington is all about deficit reduction, Americans outside the Beltway want to hear about the creation of good jobs. It is time for Congress to get the message.
We need 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 Monday, July 18 from 6-8 p.m. EST members of Congress and hundreds of workers will start a conversation in Pittsburgh as part of a nationwide summer tour to promote good jobs and rebuild the American Dream.
