National Jobs with Justice continues to urge everyone to get behind the worldwide protest known generally as "Occupy Wall Street." I recommend that groups form their own contingents in these marches and rallies, then work like heck to get members to attend. If we haven't found a way, yet, to bring everybody together, we must continue trying. It's the only solution!
