You’re one of our top activists on trade
and today will be a big day. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to
speak up for working people and take a stand to stop the Trans-Pacific
Even though the TPP was signed last week
by the U.S. Trade Representative and the other countries involved, we still
can insist that our lawmakers oppose ratification. Today and tomorrow,
working men and women from around the country are calling their representatives
to do exactly that.
You’ve been with us on this for a while
now, so you already know the talking points: The TPP was written in secret—without
considering workers’ interests. It will ship our jobs offshore, let corporations
suppress wages even more, and give corporate CEOs and private interest
groups even more power over our communities.
We’ve built great momentum, and many of
our elected leaders have heard us and continue to stand with us. Working
families have written letters, signed petitions, left testimonial comments
and even introduced and passed more than 100 resolutions in local municipalities—all
in opposition to the TPP.
We’re making progress and will not give
up now. Let’s remind Congress we’re still watching and will hold them accountable.

one solution to skyrocketing inequality that most of the TV talking heads
love to ignore: Unions! It is no surprise. Without
unions, big companies like Walmart or Amazon can cut benefits, allow unsafe
working conditions, slash wages, and pocket the massive profits.
I am not afraid to talk about how unions are essential and I am relying
on you to get the word out. Please watch and share now:
More economic growth, higher
wages, shared prosperity all by strengthening unions. 50 or 60 years ago,
it was considered obvious; today, folks are afraid to talk about it. That
is what decades of right-wing propaganda will do.
The first step is to spread
the word by sharing this message right now, because MoveOn will be campaigning
for the idea that gets the most traction in our Big Picture series.
This video is the latest
in the â€Å“Big Picture: Ten Ideas to Save the Economyâ€Â¯
series I am working on with MoveOn. And MoveOn has committed to campaigning
on the ideas that get the most traction. So
if you believe in fair pay for a hard days work, you wont want to skip
watching and sharing this video. Thanks for all you do.
