Bring Our Jobs HOME !

Contact Tennessee Elected officials http://www.tennesseeanytime.org/topics/Elected+Officials

Did you know that over the last decade, we have lost more manufacturing jobs (as a percentage of the total) than during the Great Depression? Senators Alexander & Corker(R`s) upper left, Congressman Stephen Fincher(Republican Tea Partier) upper right. All of thse representatives are anti-union...surprise, surprise, surprise ! They also oppose minimum wage.

That’s 50,000 facilities and nearly six million manufacturing jobs gone. This outsourcing has spread to other sectors as well, like call centers, health care, administrative services and more. A 2009 study by economists Alan Blinder and Alan Krueger estimated that one in four U.S. jobs is vulnerable to offshoring. Congress can take steps NOW to stop outsourcing by eliminating tax incentives for shipping jobs overseas, passing currency manipulation legislation, enacting strong Buy American provisions and other Union priorities.
Contact Congress & Take it Public. Recently-introduced legislation, the Bring Jobs Home Act (S. 2884/H.R. 5542), would eliminate the tax incentive that outsourcing companies receive for moving expenses as they ship jobs overseas. It also rewards those companies that bring jobs back with a 20 percent tax credit on expenses incurred when moving employment back to the U.S.
Republican, Democrat or Independent: We should all agree on that.

Step 1:

Please call your Members of Congress today by dialing the Capitol switchboard toll-free at 866-297-3817.
Ask each of your Senators, Alexander & Corker to pass the Bring Jobs Home Act (S. 2884). Note: We anticipate a Senate vote on this bill during the second week in July. Ask your Representative, Stephen Fincher to cosponsor the Bring Jobs Home Act (H.R. 5542). Not sure who your two Senators and Representative are?
Check www.house.gov (enter your zip code) and www.senate.gov for a listing. If you live in District#8 Tennessee it is above.

Step 2:

We want to take our message to the public during the Fourth of July week. Think about what you can do to raise this issue in your community (parades, events with legislators, letters to the editor, etc.). We need America talking about outsourcing and what we can do to bring jobs home! As events are planned, they will be posted to the www.americawantstowork.org website.

Editorial : I have phoned Senators Alexander (you will get a recording to leave a message) I did ! Also Senator Bob Corker, with whom, I talked with one of his office staff. Then on too Congressman Stephen Fincher. I talked with one of his office staff. The call is toll free. I urge you to contact them. 866-297-3817. As the advertisers say "Call Now"!

"Loyalty to country, always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it." !

"Democracy...is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch"!

Liberty...is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
