UCubed Activists Craft Emergency Jobs Plan

The process of crafting an emergency action plan for reversing the U.S. jobs crisis continues as thousands of UCubed job activists vote on a list of key policy recommendations. The results of the online survey will become the focal point of a nationwide campaign entitled Hire US, America.

UCubed members have spent weeks deliberating the Hire US, America plan, offering their suggestions and additions. The 16-point plan is now 23-points. Key features include long-term extensions of unemployment benefits; a new Tier V benefit for workers who have been unemployed for more than two years; the creation of a public sector jobs program similar to the Works Progress Administration (WPA); recreation of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA); and permitting unemployed Americans to tap their retirement accounts without penalty.

The Hire US, America campaign will include personal visits to lawmakers and candidates, as well as public events to highlight the candidates’ support or indifference to the plight of jobless Americans.
