Michael Jackson, an emergency room nurse from San Diego, Calif., joins a nurse rally Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011, in San Francisco. Some 1,000 registered nurses from across the U.S. rallied in San Francisco Thursday across from the Federal Reserve Bank to step up the campaign to tax Wall Street financial speculation to fund a recovery program for the economic crisis slamming Main Street communities. National Nurses United, which will sponsor the rally, says a tax on major Wall Street trades of stocks, bonds, derivatives, currencies and other transactions would raise hundreds of billions of needed revenue for jobs at living wages, healthcare for all, quality education, and freedom from hunger and homelessness.
