      Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death:
      Its Record of Endangering Workers & Consumers Unabated,
      with 
      Pat Purcell, Director, Special Projects, Local 1500, UFCW
       
      Jdimytai Damour, a Wal-Mart employee in suburban New York died after
      he was trampled by a crush of shoppers who tore down the front doors
      and thronged into the store, subsequent to being wiped into a frenzy of
      bargain hunting by the retail giant, who failed to protect its staff and
      consumers from the expected crush.

      Jared's Waist Maybe Shrinking at Subway's Restaurants, But Wages
      and Working Conditions Are Also Slim for Subway's Tomato Pickers
      with
      Leonel Perez, Member, Coalition of Immokalee Workers
      and
      Marc Rodriguez, Student/Farmworker Alliance
       
      The Coalition of Immokalee Workers launched a national protest calling on
      Subway Restaurant, the world's largest sandwich chain and the biggest
      fast-food buyer of Florida tomatoes to improve wages and working conditions
      for those who pick the tomatoes.  Their national protest will culminate with a
      march from the United Nations to a local Subway Restaurant on International
      Human Rights Day, December 10th.

      People's Bailout Now!!
      National Week of Action December 7-13,
      with
      Laura McSpedon, North East Regional Coordinator, Jobs with Justice

       
      The Wall Street bailout has proven to be a give-away to the same financial
      bigwigs that have been pocketing millions while wrecking the real economy. 
      Little or no benefit has gone to the working people and the real economy. 
      By the time Obama is sworn in, hundreds of thousands of additional people
      will lose their jobs, lose their homes and lose their health care.  Jobs with
      Justice is calling for a "People's Bailout" that fixes the real economy,
      restores a voice for working people in challenging corporate greed,
      provides emergency help to the victims of the crisis and begins building a
      fair economy that works for all, addressing crises in housing, health care,
      jobs, retirement security and the environment.
