Vote as if your life depended on it – because it does, said the Union of Unemployed (UCubed) in a recent message to its more than 4,000 job activists and 130,000 Facebook fans.
“Neither apathy, nor anxiety should keep jobless Americans from the polls on November 6th. All you have worked for – and all you have lost yet hope to recover – hangs in the balance,” said UCubed Executive Director Rick Sloan.
UCubed, now in the final days of its groundbreaking get-out-the-vote Facebook campaign, BEE MAD @ THE GOP, continues its push for the unemployed, the underemployed, their friends, neighbors and families to get to the polls on November 6th. How they vote could singlehandedly affect the election, says UCubed.
“Voters from jobless households will cast over 45 million ballots,” said Sloan. “Their choices will determine who wins and who loses. And their 45 million ballots will dictate the path America takes in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.”
UCubed’s BEE MAD @ THE GOP Facebook campaign began in July 2012 with the goal of helping the unemployed target their anger and frustration about the current jobs crisis where it rightfully belongs: on the GOP. Matching worker bees against elephants, the Republican mascot, the campaign uses micro-videos encouraging the unemployed to “swarm to the polls” in November and hand the GOP a “stinging” defeat.

UCubed is also encouraging its members to plan ahead for Election Day by making sure they are registered, have all the necessary identification, know their polling location and hours, and – most importantly – bring a friend.
