Millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations have hired an army of lobbyists to invade Capitol Hill and persuade Congress to make cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and education, while keeping tax breaks for the rich and corporate America. We may not have their army of lobbyists, but we do have a coalition of Teamsters and other groups across America that are mobilizing our own grassroots army to stop these draconian cuts that only benefit the top 1 % of Americans.
On Wednesday, January 30th, events are being held across America to let Congress know loud and clear that we will not stand tor cuts to the earned benefits of all Americans and that it is time for the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share.
The IBT is encouraging Local Unions and Joint Councils to participate in this January 30th day of action and to make your members aware as well. To find an event happening in your area, please go to www.americawantstowork.org. Please check back often as events are continually being added as they are finalized.
