JIM COREY: Did you know that Martin Luther King’s watershed speech “I have the dream” was actually about jobs, and that the 1963 March on Washington was actually known as the “1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom”? In almost all of MLK’s major speeches and writings he addresses jobs as one of the major things our society needs to address so that people are able to lift themselves out of poverty. Let me quote, “We call our demonstration a campaign for jobs and income because we feel the economic question is the most crucial that black people and poor people in general are confronting.”
Martian Luther King led the way for Employment for All.
What can we do, almost 60 years later, to make the dream of employment for all possible?
We look forward to this discussion. Thank you very much. Thank you Martin Luther King.
