Vigil for the jobless this evening

No, you’re not imagining things: more and more events really ARE springing up all over in which average people are coming together to highlight the absurdity of a nation in which one in ten people are jobless at the same time that corporate profits and CEO salaries are shooting through the roof.  

Tonight’s event: A candlelight vigil/press conference this evening in Raleigh to shine a spotlight on our state’s unemployed and underemployed workers.

When: Tonight, 6:15 – 7:15 pm

Where: Bicentennial Mall: 16 W. Jones Street, Raleigh, NC (across the street from the NC General Assembly)
