Unions, Allies Back American Jobs Act

Unions and progressive organizations are calling the American Jobs Act that President Obama presented to a joint session of Congress last night a vital and essential step to restoring the nation’s economy and putting America back to work.

They are urging Congress to put aside partisan politics and pass the legislation as a major tool to solve the nation’s jobs crisis. At the same time, the groups are urging Obama and Congress to maintain and strengthen Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
