For the last eleven months, Chicago Jobs with Justice has protested at the State of Illinois building to dramatize the consistently bad unemployment report issued by the US Department of Labor. Each month the demonstrations have gotten bigger. The last few months have included marches to big banks or other targets symbolic of the economic causes of the crisis.
This past Friday the action was bigger and more militant. Friday’s action included a march to join the Occupy Chicago movement in front of the Chicago Board of Trade on LaSalle Street (Chicago’s Wall Street).
