WASHINGTON - Tired of politicians rigging the system on behalf of big corporations and the wealthy, families, workers and supporters are rising up across the country on Wednesday, March 11, to reclaim government and demand that elected officials put people and the planet before profits and polluters.
With all these people, are there any speaking out about our poverty crisis? If so, is it possible to get some of their ideas into the public forum? We know that not everyone can work (health, etc.), and that there aren’t jobs for all who urgently need one.We already tried over 30 years of calling for job creation, but too many people end up pushed out and destitute.We need to consider what we’re going to do about them.
