|Teamsters holding the line for the middle class in Philly.|
"@bctdprez: The Energy here in hometown of Philly is incredible. 20k plus union brothers and sisters here to rally for Amer workers!! #WS4A@MikeElk, a reporter for In These TImes, estimates there are 25,000 people in Philly right now, marching, chanting, listening to speeches.
Sen. Bob Casey, a good friend of the middle class, is there renewing his commitment to the Second Bill of Rights.
Organized Working people built and will continue to build the middle class. At #ws4a rallyLeann Bosquez, who went from a high-paying job to unemployment, is also speaking today. @WorkersStand4America tells us:
Bosquez: "I'm sick of politicians saying the unemployed are lazy..the last thing I am is lazy" #ws4a #1u pic.twitter.com/zL49CpvP
Bosquez: "Median wage of future is 35,000 a year. That's not enough to support a family." #ws4a
Leann: "isn't it time our politicians support policies that create #jobs at home, instead of overseas?" #ws4a
Bosquez: "We truly need a 2nd Bill Rights...one that includes a right to a job." #ws4a #1uAnd we especially like a tweet from Liz Shuler, secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO, about IBEW President's Ed Hill's speech:
Ed Hill @IBEW kicks off @Workers4America rally in Philly. "We need to look out for one another - that's why we're here" #ws4a
