AFSCME Ad Greets Jobs Debate

“More Jobs Equal Less Debt” to Air in Orlando, Nationally

Washington, DC — 

Gerald W. McEntee, President of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFL-CIO (AFSCME) today announced that a television ad, titled “More Jobs Equal Less Debt,” will greet Republican presidential candidates in Orlando and nationally. The 30-second spot is the opening salvo in a broader campaign that AFSCME is planning in support of enactment of a robust jobs plan. The ad urges Congress to pass the American Jobs Act.

“Even a kid can understand that the only way to reduce the deficit is to create jobs, so it’s time for Republican leaders in Washington to quit the political games and pass the American Jobs Act now,” stated McEntee. “It’s time to put America back to work.”

“More Jobs Equal Less Debt” will begin airing Sept. 23, in Orlando, Fla., and on national cable. “More jobs equals less debt, even our kids can understand that. Tell Congress to pass the American Jobs Act Now,” is the tag line at the conclusion of the ad.

AFSCME’s first ad can be viewed here:
