Union of Unemployed leaders and activists are being urged to ramp up their efforts to let Congress know how the latest tax cut package fails to address the plight of the nation’s long-term unemployed.
“Congress is giving $540 billion – over half a trillion dollars – in tax breaks to corporations and wealthy Americans,” said Union of Unemployed Acting Executive Director Rick Sloan in a message to activists. “And yet, this tax deal contains not a dime for the 99ers, not a penny for direct job creation.”
Congress plans to adjourn this Friday, December 17. So pour it on!
