CCI members are standing with our Brothers & Sisters in Labor today to demand good paying jobs – not more cuts – from our elected officials. Today, November 17th is a national day of action. CCI members in Johnson County, Polk County, across the state, and even in Washington DC will be standing up to send a strong message that the 99% are demanding a fix to our crumbling infrastructure and a fix to the continued unemployment crisis, not more cuts for the 1%. We know cuts don’t create jobs.
Join us for this symbolic and important demonstration tomorrow!
7:30 am – Park Road Bridge in Iowa City. Corner of Dubuque and Park Road
(Meet in the Hancher Auditorium Parking Lot at 7:15 a.m.)
The Des Moines protest is being sponsored by the South Central Federation of Labor & MoveOn. It will be at 11AM at the East 14th St bridge over I-235
The formula is simple. By fixing our nation’s infrastructure, we will:
RAISE TAX REVENUE
LEAVE A BETTER COUNTRY FOR OUR KIDS
So join us as we stand with our friends in labor, with other concerned citizens, and for the 99%!
Let’s tell the politicians “We need Jobs, Not Cuts!”
I look forward to seeing you there!
