U.S. (Apr 19) – With relentless effort and fortitude, the unemployed, unemployed without benefits, and underemployed gather momentum for their grassroot movement, MAYDAY SOS, scheduled for April 30 and May 3, 2010.
Their plan is simple and unique in their bid to be recognized and once again represented by their government – fax and email resumes to Washington. Participants also are encouraged to snail mail their resumes by April 30 to The White House.
Paladinette, founder of JoblessUnite, understands the fight those demanding extensions to Tier IV and the addition of a Tier V face. “There is no talk of a Tier V, nor even a hint that there will be one so put the pressure on, support it with REAL numbers how many jobs have you applied for/Resumes sent out in your job search. They need to hear from us,” her statement at MAYDAY SOS reads.
Organization and timing will play a key role to the success or failure of such a massive, non-violent, movement. Specific Washington cabinet members and members of Congress contacts are listed at the site, along with free fax options for those without the means to send resumes in this manner.
“In order for ‘M-A-Y-D-A-Y S.O.S.” to have the biggest impact we need to focus on the target list,” Paladinette informs her visitors. “…on April 30th and May 3rd only!”
WNV readers are aware we support non-violent approaches to citizen representation such as the 99er Tier V petition at Change.org, and JoblessUnite’s resume days.
With even a thin sliver of possibility that these non-violent, but highly effective and efficient, efforts pay off, it is every citizen’s duty to ensure that they are fairly represented in Washington, D.C., and heard on Capitol Hill.
