That’s the dream of Ocean State Action and 23 other labor, community, environmental, student and religious groups. Wednesday at 4 pm — Rally at the Soldiers and Sailors monument in Kennedy Plaza, right across from the Providence City Hall. Join us to call for urgent action from Congress to create more jobs for Rhode Islanders, reduce damaging state budget cuts by sending federal money to the state, and finish the job on health insurance reform. We encourage you to come bearing posters and decked out in hard hats, white coats, suits or jeans.
- The JOBS FOR MAIN STREET Act to help reduce the Rhode Island budget deficit and to extend unemployment and COBRA for unemployed workers,
- NATIONAL HEALTH CARE REFORM to control costs, extend coverage to everyone and make sure insurers are treating consumers fairly,
- and the PUT AMERICA TO WORK Act to create jobs for unemployed workers in urban core communities and meet community needs.
