Mobilize to restore the American Dream
Posted by on

Union members in the Greater Boston area are gathering this week to send a message that they aim to defend and promote the American Dream. A rally is being held TODAY at 4:00 PM in Boston's Financial District to call on corporate CEOs and those who have prospered to create good jobs and pay their fare share for essential government services. The rally will be held at 125 High Street, near the intersection of High and Oliver Street. More than 30 labor and community groups will be attending.

It's time for middle-class Americans to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. You may have heard that despite more than $5 billion in profits, General Electric is paying $0 in taxes this year. Did you know that State Street Bank is also paying nothing in taxes, despite making $1.55 billion in profits? Their CEO, Joseph Hooley made $12.9 million while laying off hundreds of Massachusetts workers. Banks and financial institutions need to stop stockpiling profits and start investing in projects that create jobs and get the economy moving again.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND ENCOURAGE OTHER MEMBERS TO ATTEND.
