VIDEO: Connecting the dots
“No jobs. No future.” That was one of the slogans chanted at the March on Wall St. The fight for jobs is the fight for our future. Everything depends on creating jobs – repairing the housing crisis, boosting consumer confidence, avoiding long-term budget crises, and closing current holes in state and local budgets.
The people who started the financial crisis of 2008 – Wall Street bankers – are responsible for the loss of 11 million jobs in this country. It’s only right they pay for the programs necessary to create jobs.
In this video, AFL-CIO Policy Director Damon Silvers explains what we mean when we say: Good Jobs Now, Make Wall Street Pay, with an introduction by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
