Your chance to stand with unemployed workers

For the millions of Americans that Wall Street’s recklessness sent to the unemployment line, time is running out. Thanks to right-wing obstructionism in Congress, emergency jobless benefits have already started to lapse—and will leave 2 million unemployed workers without a lifeline by the New Year. Another 4 million will be left out in the cold by the end of February, through no fault of their own.

Still not convinced that extending unemployment benefits is the right thing to do? Check out this powerful video of workers sharing their side of the story.

The good news is that you can make a difference. Today is the AFL-CIO’s Online Day of Solidarity with the long-term unemployed, and it’s easier than show your support—on Facebook and Twitter, and of course by calling Congress.
