Reverend Jesse Jackson is pushing for employment equality, and help for the millions of Americans out of work.  Today, he talked with Ali about the importance of making your voice heard.  To that point, Revered Jackson and his son, Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. are asking anyone looking for work to send them your resume.  They will take them to Washington, to show just how badly the nation is hurting during the unemployment crisis.

You can send you resume to and have your voice heard.
