One of my favorite lines from the announcement:

Fifty years ago, the nation's largest employer was (General Motors). An average GM employee could pay for a year's tuition at a state university with two weeks' wages.

Today in America, with dreams of college, a decent paying job, and a secure retirement slipping beyond the reach of so very many, the American Dream seems to be hanging by a thread.

1. *KICK*

that was one of my favorites as well.

This one made me smile from ear to ear:

A stronger middle class is not the consequence of economic growth a stronger middle class is the cause of economic growth.

Together, as one nation we must build an American economy that works again for all of us.

That means good jobs and wage policies that allow hardworking families to actually get ahead. That means a higher minimum wage, overtime pay for overtime work, and respect for the rights of all workers to organize and collectively bargain for better wages.

If we take these actions, the dream will live again.
