There are 14 million unemployed in America, while the richest 1% has tripled its wealth over the past 30 years.

Everyday, we see hard-working families struggling to survive.That is why we are marching on Dec. 1. It’s not just for the labor movement, but for everyone who is frustrated and worried about the growing economic disparity in this country. It’s for anyone who has ever agonized about finding a job, paying for college, meeting a mortgage payment, or how to buy enough food for dinner.

The March for Jobs and Economic Fairness on Dec. 1 is a call to action and a show of unity — we want to march down Broadway from Herald Square to Union Square and fill the street from curb to curb so government and big business get
our message: enough is enough.

It’s time to end the unfair economic policies in this country that benefit too few, and leave everyone else behind.

Come after work. Come when you can.
Join working people from NYC and beyond.

This march is our call to action.

NO rally. NO speeches. It’s all been said before. Your participation in this march will be our statement.
