As we all know, our country is in an economic crisis. People are losing their jobs, their homes, their ability to provide their children with quality education, and their ability to retire with dignity and peace of mind. The cost of the most basic necessities such as health care, utilities, and fuel continue to skyrocket. In this current economic crisis, the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930’s, workers and their communities need more opportunities to get ahead.

Dear Environmental Justice friends and allies,
Members of UE Local 1110 who work at Republic Windows and Doors in Chicago are occupying the plant around the clock this weekend, in an effort to force the company and its main creditor to meet their obligations to the workers. Their goal is to at least get the compensation that workers are owed; they also seek the resumption of operations at the plant. All 260 members of the local were laid off Friday in a sudden plant closing, brought on by Bank of America cutting off operating credit to the company.
This weekend President Bush will convene leaders of the world's wealthiest nations to address the financial crises. We, along with thousands of organizations worldwide, believe that those who made this mess should not be the ones trying to fix it. Looking back on the last three decades of economic policies, the world's leaders should ask one fundamental question: Who pays and who benefits?
