The America Wants to Work Pledge

America needs good jobs, and I pledge to do all I can as an activist to demand that our leaders create them.

I pledge to demand that all elected officials take the bold and dramatic steps needed to put America back to work and restore our economy.

I will rally, send letters and e-mails and make phone calls to elected leaders to make my voice heard.

I will educate and mobilize the people I know—co-workers, neighbors, family and friends—to join me in this essential activism.

I will refuse to accept claims that America can’t afford to create jobs or that we are powerless to do it, and I will judge all politicians, of any party, by the leadership they display in retaining and creating good jobs.
