Sign the Jobs Not Wars petition. Put our money where the peace is!
In all of the hoopla over fiscal cliffs and debt ceilings, we’re hardly hearing a word about the outrageous economic toll of America’s endless wars. It’s time for labor’s voice to be heard loud and clear: We agree with the AFL-CIO National Executive Council that: “The militarization of our foreign policy has proven to be a costly mistake. It is time to invest at home.” We call on Congress and President Obama to fund jobs, education, health services, and other basic needs by increasing taxes on corporations, financial speculators, and the wealthiest individuals; and by redirecting our nation’s resources from war and uncontrolled Pentagon funding.
The JOBS NOT WARS petition campaign is sponsored by U.S. Labor Against the War in cooperation with several other national organizations. Please sign the petition and forward the link:
