organization

Overview


In 1997, thirty-three Democratic Members of the U.S. House of Representatives were original co-sponsors of the Job Creation and Infrastructure Restoration Act, a Communist Party USA project that was introduced into Congress by Rep. Matthew Martinez (D-California). Supported by the New York State Communist Party, this federal legislation was designed to create jobs at union wages in financially foundering cities by putting the unemployed to work on infrastructure projects such as rebuilding schools, housing, hospitals, libraries, public transportation, highways, and parks. Rep. Martinez had already introduced a version of this bill in the previous Congress at the request of the Los Angeles Labor Coalition for Public Works Jobs, whose leaders were known supporters or members of the Communist Party USA.
