Detroit Michigan August 28 - Rally/March

On August 28 there will be a rally and march in Detroit, Michigan. If you live in the area, please make it a priority to be there.

March in Detroit: Call to March
August 28 Rally & March to Rebuild America

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition and UAW, along with our friends and allies, will march to mark the beginning of a new campaign that will call on our leaders to Rebuild America by enacting policy that will unleash the skills and talent of the American workforce. We will march for Jobs, Justice and Peace on the anniversary of that day in 1963 when Walter Reuther, president of UAW, Martin Luther King, Jr., president of SCLC, and other civil rights leaders joined with hundreds of thousands of Americans for the March on Washington.

  1. This is a stupid blog, has no validity whats so ever. If all you unemployed individuals put the time and energy into seeking a real JOB other then writing blogs and congress you just might find real work instead of draining America's US economy....... GO GET A JOB! And stop mooching of us American's!

    Working and happy in DC!

  2. Anonymous, apparently, you enjoy being "under the guise of anonymity".

    My blog is what it is, helpful to those unemployed people, whether they get benefits or not. I'm a resource for information. Apparently, you don't understand.

    We all look for work EVERY day, not that anyone needs to answer to you.

    As for "mooching", WE paid into unemployment for YEARS, maybe even more years than you are old. If you want to see "mooching", look around at all the illegal immigrants. Most come here for FREE medical care, etc.

    Perhaps next time, you'll check your facts before writing.
