The days go on, but unemployment rates remain at a low. That is why Al Sharpton with his National Action Network has organized the “Jobs for Justice” march to hopefully get the attention of Congress and the government and make them understand that this is a problem that must be fixed.
In a CNN article, Sharpton is quoted saying, “Those of us that believe that it is necessary to raise the level of drama for those that have been left out of the conversation will be marching together on that day.” Originally scheduled to coincide with last month’s opening of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial in D.C., the march as well as the opening were rescheduled due to hurricane Irene. Now taking place on October 15, the march will begin with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial and conclude near the King Memorial.
Sharpton organized the “Jobs for Justice” to grab the attention Congress and government and call on them to put more work in improving the high unemployment in our country.
