American workers deserve better than a corporate bailout for nuclear power companies.
ACT NOW: Tell the White House and Congress – don't sacrifice 60,000 family-sustaining, green jobs to nuclear bailouts!
Congress and the White House are proposing a massive national bailout for the nuclear power industry — up to $50 billion over the next decade. This would undercut the principle goals of President Biden’s American Jobs and Families Plan: to create millions of quality jobs rebuilding our country’s infrastructure, reaching 100% clean energy by 2035, and building a just and equitable economic recovery.
A $50 billion bailout will not create a single job in nuclear power. Even worse, it will prevent the creation of 67,000 jobs in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and the transition to 100% clean energy. So here is the choice: are we going to give $50 billion to bail out old reactors or are we going to create four times as many jobs building the energy industry of the future?
Take Action for American Workers!
Our elected leaders must seize the opportunity to create a better, cleaner, more equitable energy future and not sacrifice over 60,000 clean, green, family-supporting jobs to corporate bailouts for nuclear power plants. This week, we are asking you to send a message to your members of Congress, President Biden, and Vice-President Harris telling them to keep nuclear subsidies out of the American Jobs and Families Plan. Tell Congress and the White House NO to nuclear bailouts and YES to green jobs for our future!
