One Nation Working Together Rally in Washington on 10-2-10
Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa today urged Teamsters to attend the Oct. 2 march in Washington for jobs, justice and education. Download video.
“On October 2, people who love America and want good jobs will come to Washington to make their voices heard,” Hoffa said. “It’s important that the Teamsters make their presence known at this historic march. We need to Put America To Work and Pull America Back Together.
“I urge Teamsters who can travel to Washington on Saturday to make the effort to reclaim an America where everyone who wants a good job can get one. We’ve moved too far away from that dream.
“Let’s meet in Washington and demand change. When it comes to our national priorities, we need to put people first. Investments in people must come before investments in Wall Street or the big corporations.”
The march is sponsored by One Nation Working Together, a coalition of unions, human rights groups, religious groups, civil rights groups and environmentalists.
