PUT AMERICA TO WORK!!
Help Organize A National Campaign to Enact HR 1000,
The Humphrey-Hawkins 21st Century Full Employment & Training Act

Rep. John Conyers has proposed new legislation that would create a national jobs program, funded by a financial speculation tax on Wall Street stock, bond and swaps and derivative trading. The bill, HR 1000, formerly HR 4277, has been reintroduced with additional provisions emphasizing the right of all workers to a good job, and calling for the federal government to satisfy this right “as promptly as possible and at the earliest practicable date."

TAKE ACTION NOW FOR A NATIONAL JOBS PROGRAM & FULL EMPLOYMENT!!

1) Endorse HR 1000 at www.PutAmericaToWork.net

2) Contact House Members and Urge Them to Cosponsor the Bill.
Urge Senators to Introduce a Companion Bill.

3) Pass a Local Resolution in your city or county or state or Labor Council about the unemployment crisis and in support of HR 870 -- visit www.PutAmericaToWork.net to download sample resolutions.

4) Hold a “First Friday” or “First Saturday” vigil or demonstration in your community to protest the high unemployment rate, and demand a national jobs program. (The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics releases new unemployment statistics on the First Friday of every month, so you can piggyback on local coverage of the unemployment crisis.) Develop a local coalition/network in support of a national jobs program. Contact Logan Martinez of NJFAC for more information. Loganmartinez2u@yahoo.com or (937) 260-2591.

5) Organize a Local Community Forum or “Citizens’ Hearings about the Unemployment Crisis.” Invite unemployed and underemployed workers to speak about their experiences. Invite local & national experts to talk about the human costs of unemployment, and the need for a national jobs program.
