American workers nationwide are mobilizing, urging Congress to pass President Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act. But the U.S. Senate this week voted down the bill, with all Republicans voting against the measure that would put 1.9 million jobs back into the economy.
On Wednesday evening, AFSCME Sec.-Treas. Lee Saunders went on MSNBC’s Politics Nation to talk about how workers nationwide will make their call for jobs heard.
“We’ve got to broaden out and become once again a Main Street movement,” Saunders said. “We’ve got to fight back. We’ve got to fight for a stronger economy. We’ve got to fight for jobs in this country.”
