Tell Senators to Stop Dragging Their Feet on the Jobs Bill!

UFCW members are extremely disappointed at what's happening in the Senate right now. It looks as though the Democratic-led Senate is going to be unable to muster up the procedural votes to send President Obama’s job creation bill forward.  Both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate need to be reminded who they’re supposed to be representing. Instead of putting their country before politics, both the Democrat-led Senate and the Republican-controlled House of Representatives have chosen to drag their feet while more and more Americans are losing their jobs, their homes and their belief in the American dream. 

As the national unemployment rate remains at 9.1 percent and the gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow, it’s clear that we need to take bold steps to lift Americans out of poverty and rebuild the middle class. President Obama’s plan, which includes tax cuts to help America’s small businesses hire and grow, including a tax cut for companies that hire new workers; a national infrastructure bank to rebuild and modernize our roads and schools; and help for the long-term unemployed, is a good first step.;

We can’t stand on the sidelines and simply hope for the best. That is why we need to work together and pass the American Jobs Act. 

Please take action now by emailing or calling your member of Congress and let them know that you will make any “no” vote on the American Jobs Act a political issue in 2012.  Click here to send an email, and call your senator RIGHT NOW to tell them to pass the American Jobs Act at
