Rally & March for JOBS and benefits, not cuts!

SATURDAY, APRIL 16th at NOON

Pioneer Courthouse Square

Direct from the front lines of the battle in Madison — Mahlon Mitchell, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin.

When talking about why he led the firefighters into the capital to protest Scott Walker’s attacks on working people, Mitchell explained, “When firefighters see an emergency, we respond.”

EIGHT MILLION JOBS were lost in the 2008 meltdown. Today there are more than five job seekers for every job. Congress should focus on creating jobs, not cutting the safety net!

Let’s stand up for community values!

  • Create good jobs now—stop job-killing trade agreements.
  • Protect and strengthen the safety net.
  • Support collective bargaining as 15,000 workers launch campaign for fairness at work in Portland.
  • Wall Street should pay for the economic crisis, not working people!

Please bring non-perishable food items for the Oregon Food Bank.
