Tell Congress to pass Pres. Obama’s American Jobs Act and KEEP GOING

Wow! What a week!

First, a victory in our campaign to end hiring discrimination against the unemployed! This week, Indeed.com, the largest job listing website in the U.S., announced it will stop posting job ads that refuse applications from unemployed candidates.

Then, last night, President Obama laid out an aggressive agenda to put millions of Americans back to work by investing in programs that USAction/TrueMajority members have been demanding — investing in infrastructure, rebuilding schools, extending unemployment benefits and prohibiting discrimination against unemployed workers.

President Obama’s American Jobs Act is a ray of hope for millions of struggling Americans, especially in opposition to the job-killing, cuts-only approach of the right wing.

Congress should quickly pass these provisions and then it should keep going and pass a robust public job creation plan.

NOW is the time for Congress to act. Please tell Congress to put America back to work.
