MNA Organizing Two Events – Press Conference in Worcester; Demonstration in Boston

Urge your Legislators to support the tax on Wall Street for jobs, healthcare, and education on Main Street

Large banks and Wall Street firms wrecked our economy. They wiped out pensions and portfolios. Because of their greed, they threw us into a recession, cost us millions of jobs, and squandered American productivity. Yet nobody has paid the price for this wrongdoing. No one has gone to jail. In fact, they remain some of the most profitable businesses in America, doling out hundreds of millions of dollars in executive bonuses. And they pay some of the lowest tax rates in the country.

Join us Sept. 1, as we ask our Legislators to support the Wall Street Transaction Tax, which will make Wall Street pay for the devastation it has caused on Main Street. It is the only way for us to reclaim the American dream — good jobs, healthcare for all, quality education, housing, protection from hunger, and a secure retirement for everyone, not just those who profited by ruining our economy.
