Thu Sep 23 2010 Jobs Emergency Declared
Protesters In San Francisco Demand Action On Unemployment Federal economic stimulus funding passed by Congress last year created jobs in non-profit organizations to provide services to the community in the Jobs Now and Community Jobs Program. That funding ends September 30, 2010, and so do those jobs.

On September 15th, protesters gathered in front of Senator Feinstein's office in downtown San Francisco to demand full and fair employment. During the rally they called for job stimulus funding for the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) Emergency Fund. They also demanded that Congress pass the Local Jobs for America Act. A large banner drop sent a message to local senators. It read, "Boxer and Feinstein: Job Crisis! Extend the TANF Emergency Fund Now!"
