President Bush's policies have led to over 2 million lost jobs, and during his presidency, 5.2 million more people have joined the ranks of the uninsured. SEIU and PunkVoter.com are spreading the message from picket line to mosh pit in an effort to put this country back on track so that every American, young and old, has a secure economic future.
"Whether you join a band or join a union -- it's all about fighting for your rights," said Stern. "This country needs affordable health care that we can count on."
"Young Americans can't find work and are suffering from some of the worst unemployment rates in three decades," said Anti-Flag member Justin Sane.
Stern will join Anti-Flag and Tom Morello, along with other PunkVoter.com members at the Rock Against Bush concert Wednesday evening at Cleveland's Agora Theater.
