Call to Action on March 2nd!

For the past week we have seen students, workers, faith and community come together and prevent attacks to the public sector across the country. These attacks are threatening the basic structures of our society, including the right to an education and the right to full and fair employment. It is time to take action and demand a stop to the cuts!

 

Student Labor Action Project, a project between United States Student Association and Jobs with Justice, is calling a national day of action on March 2nd to defend the public sector.

 

State budget cuts to higher education are being made in states across the country and workers face cuts to pay, healthcare and pensions. Many of the workers on college campuses are caught in the crisis of both attacks to the public sector.

 

Join us on March 2nd to demand that the attacks on the public sector are stopped immediately. It’s time to:

 

  • Protect the vital public services our community needs, and the jobs of the people who deliver those services;
  • Ensure that higher education remains affordable and accessible to all;
  • Call for our elected leaders to recognize the emergency and take bold action to create new jobs that will put people back to work, rebuild our country’s infrastructure, and invest in higher education; and
  • Support workers seeking a job with justice, a living wage, the right to organize a union, a fair contract and a voice at work.

 

Never before has USSA, SLAP, and Jobs with Justice all come together for a single call to action.  The vital importance of fighting the pandemic attacks on public education and workers required each to unite with one voice in action. 

 

Sign up to organize with us on March 2nd we continue building a movement that prioritizes public need over corporate greed.

In solidarity,

Sarita Gupta
