WGAE Members Rallied and Marched on Wall Street

Wall Street tanked America’s economy, killed jobs, took $700 billion in taxpayer bailout, then went right back to business as usual, choking off credit, handing out $145 billion in 2009 executive pay and bonuses and fighting meaningful financial reform.

America is 11 million jobs in the hole and it’s time for the financial industry to pay up, to use profits not just to generate more wealth for themselves but to build, revitalize and innovate, creating employment and security.

On April 29th, WGAE members and staff joined AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and  thousands of union and community activists from across the country in a march down Broadway through the heart of the financial district. Our voices were heard.
