Event Description

Our Bridges Need Work. So Do We!

We have a jobs crisis here in Washington. But instead of doing their part to get the economy moving again, Congress and the State Legislature are making more cuts.

Instead we need to get people working on the jobs that need to get done. The Jobs Act proposed by President Obama would invest $50 billion in immediate projects like fixing roads, bridges, and mass transit to get people working and get the economy moving. It wouldn't solve all our problems, but it's a big step in the right direction.

But some politicians keep saying no to jobs. Instead of getting us back to work, they're demanding cuts to Social Security, health care, and education - cuts that we simply can't afford.

On November 17th, people from across the area will converge at the functionally obsolete Montlake Bridge to demand our political leaders work for new jobs, not make more cuts.

Refreshments - 3:30 p.m. Rally - 4:00 p.m. March - 4:30 p.m.
