Union members to 'March for Jobs' in Pittsburg today

More than 70,000 people are expected to march in a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh today geared at bringing a special focus on jobs and the unemployed. It's dubbed the "March for Jobs."

Organizers have made it clear that any politicians who are hostile to the labor movement are not welcome at the event and will be turned away.

This morning on American Morning, Allegeny County President of the AFL-CIO Jack Shea and Jim Bonner, an unemployed transit worker attending the march, explain what they think needs to happen to get Americans back to work.
