On Thursday, March 18, 2010, union members and community allies will join together at Owen Grundy Park in Jersey City to demand good jobs now. America needs 11 million jobs and big Wall Street banks should pay to rebuild jobs and the economy they helped destroy.
The rally will be held from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Owen Grundy Park at Exchange Place in the heart of Jersey City’s financial district, right across the Hudson River from Wall Street.

This rally is only one of hundreds being held across the country from March 15 to 26 to hold Wall Street accountable in our fight for good jobs.
Big Wall Street banks helped cause the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, homes and retirement savings. But in 2009, the biggest Wall Street banks gave their execs $145 billion in pay and bonuses.
We are calling on Wall Street to
- Stop refusing to pay their fair share to restore jobs
- Stop fighting financial reform
- Start lending to our communities, small businesses and others starved for credit
Join the Hudson County Central Labor Council on March 18 in our fight for good jobs. The time has come for Wall Street to pay for repairing the economy they helped destroy.
