Oct 8: Jobs rally, resource, and unity fair


Come one and all to the PA Wants to Work; Jobs Now! Rally,  Resource and Unity Fair.

Join us at this dynamic community event for the whole family, kicking off at noon with speakers and live music featuring Pittsburgh's own Mike Stout.

This event kicks off the national week of action for jobs and unity with America's unemployed, laid-off and underemployed workers. This is the time to come together, get fired up, and demand immediate action from Congress to put America back to work.

Terry Miale, who lost her job when the whole company was outsourced, is our keynote speaker. She will tell the story of her journey from loss, despair and disillusionment to becoming a fighter for struggling workers and the American Dream for all. 

There's power in community and our strength is in unity.

12 noon to 3:30 p.m., with lunch served at 1:30.  Fall fun, crafts and books for the kids, and a free raffle for a Steelers basket.Spread the word;  you can also share this event on facebook.  Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers Hall, 10 South 19th St. Southside of Pgh, 15203.
