Vermonters Rallying to support Occupying Wall Street on October 15th

Wall Street tanked our economy. We now have record job losses, home foreclosures, and much more. They got bailed out, while we got left out.  That’s why we support the brave people Occupying Wall Street.  This is our time to fight for good family supporting jobs and make Wall Street pay their fair share. Rally with us October 15th in Burlington, Brattleboro, Montpelier, or Rutland. We’ll start the day canvassing with the Vermont Workers' Center about the jobs crisis and challenges facing our communities. Please join us!
In Solidarity,
Ben Johnson
President, United Professions AFT VT
