WHAT DO YOU THINK?

SHOULD THE GA ADOPT “JOBS FOR ALL”

AS A DEMAND OF OCCUPY WALL STREET?

 

The Demands Working Group of Occupy Wall Street is proposing “Jobs for ALL” to the General Assembly of Occupy Wall Street on Sunday, October 30 as a first, but not only demand. But before we do, we are asking other Working Group, all participants in OWS, union, community groups and other supporters to discuss this demand and propose modifications of our proposed text. This is our PROPOSAL:

 

“Jobs for ALL - A Massive Public Works and Public Service Program

 

We demand a massive public works and public service program with direct government employment at prevailing (union) wages, paid for by taxing the rich and corporations, by immediately ending all of America's wars, and by ending all aid to authoritarian regimes to create 25 million new jobs to:

 

-Expand education: cut class sizes and provide free university for all;

-Expand healthcare and provide free healthcare for all (single payer system);

-Build housing, guarantee decent housing for all;

-Expand mass transit, provided for free;

-Rebuild the infrastructure—bridges, flood control, roads;

-Research and implement clean energy alternatives; and

-Clean up the environment.

These jobs are to be open to all, regardless of documentation/immigration status or criminal record.”

 

THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL OWS DEMAND, BUT AN OPTION BEING PROPOSED BY ONE GROUP
