8 minutes to better understanding...
... of why the Occupy Wall Street is happening.
Watch this 8 minute video clip for a clear explanation.
Not paying attention to what's happening on the streets of our cities?
You should. 85% of the population supports the protest against corporations taking control of our democratic process.
Watch, listen, and learn.
Pass it on.
Voting is one of the most important things you can do as a Union member. So please register to vote. Politics impact every aspect of your private and public life. Prevailing wage, Right-to-Work for less, protections in the workplace and even your ability to collectively bargain can be impacted by election results.
Please vote in every election. The ability to earn a good wage and for our signatory contractors to be competitive in the market depends on your vote.
