A real green jobs movement

This petition had 325 supporters

As you know, unemployment continues to ravage America, driving families into debt and homelessness. Extending unemployment benefits has helped relieve the pain but not put people back to work. During the Great Depression, programs like the WPA and CCC provided earnings to millions in construction, infrastructure, and public betterment projects. They cost little, acted quickly, and provided a healthy lifeline to the unemployed. Our country needs now the vision that produced such programs. I urge the White House and Congress to pass HR 4812, the Local Jobs for America Act, with changes, that will put one million people to work almost immediately, doing essential jobs in local communities across our nation. Also, consider A real green jobs movement, like greening and upgrading of the electric grids system, it would also create a free stimulus package because the 10 % people save on their electric bills they will spend on other things.
