99% Protesting for a Portion of the Pie ! You Bet`Cha ~

99% Protesting Politicians & Demanding a Portion of Pie !
Across the country, people are protesting an economy that doesn't work.

The very wealthiest people and big corporations are seeing a recovery, but today's unemployment reports show the economy isn't working for the other 99% of us.
Here are the facts. Unemployment is at 8.6 percent, with millions more underemployed or discouraged from entering the labor force. There are more than four job seekers for every opening. And more than 40 percent of the unemployed have been out of work for six months or more. With this many people unable to get good jobs, the economy suffers. Without money in their pockets, families have a harder time making ends meet and keeping a roof over their heads, and they can't support businesses, either. Unemployment insurance is a lifeline not just for those without jobs, but for their communities and the economy.
Support the unemployed—sign on to the 9 Demands of the 99%.
The continued weakness in the job market makes extending unemployment insurance essential—but at the end of the year, extended unemployment benefits will expire for the long-term unemployed, taking millions of dollars out of the hands of those who rely on it. That's why extending unemployment benefits is one of the 9 Demands of the 99%. Support the unemployed—sign on to the 9 Demands of the 99%. We need to tell Congress it's time to get their priorities straight. Millions of unemployed people—and the families and businesses that count on them—need our support. Extending unemployment insurance is a necessary step to an economy that works for everyone, not just the 1%.

P.S. After you've signed the 9 Demands petition, send a letter to Congress urging it to pass unemployment insurance.

Editorial : Remember, the 1% have made million$/billion$ during this rece$$ion of the 99% ! Our Biggest export has been JOB$ ! Politicians have sold us to the highest bidder. Trickle Down ~ A Very Bad Joke !
