It’s time for the underemployed, unemployed, low-wage workers, the middle class and others who are in solidarity to unify and fight for living wages and initiatives that will empower our communities.

Regardless of the results of the Presidential elections, New York City Unemployment rate holds steady at 10%, When you factor in discouraged job-seekers along with the underemployed, one in seven New Yorkers, or 1.4 million people, are out of work.

Our elected officials proclaim that New York’s job growth outpaces the national rate, however they are low wage jobs, they are poverty wage jobs.

Since our government agencies such as Department of Human Services and Labor, etc continues to operate in a fashion that strips the dignity and self-determination of it’s citizens with dead-end service jobs and low skill training programs, it’s time for the people to march and visit these Department of Social Services, the Department of Labor in the vicinity and let our fellow New Yorkers know there is a better way to feed our families, there are better ways to live and unite.

If you want to help organize this please contact me, I am not a professional activist, I am not a organizer, I am just a citizen that is tired of being disrespected by Political leaders that should be serving us and not the interest of Corporations.
