Activists rally, calling on Wall Street to restore jobs

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – Working families are calling on Wall Street to help restore jobs. The Western New York Area Labor Federation and Coalition for Economic Justice rallied outside of Bank of American in downtown Buffalo Thursday.

Working families are demanding the creation of good jobs. They want Wall Street to help restore jobs, provide proper lending and stop fighting financial reform.

Patty DeVinney is with the Western New York Labor Federation. She says America needs 11 million jobs. The AFL-CIO and its coalition partners are calling on Wall Street to step up to the plate.

Over 200 similar rallies are happening across the country now through March 26th. The rallying cry is being dubbed "Good Jobs Now: Make Wall Street Pay."
