About 2,000 people are expected to attend a noon jobs rally in downtown this afternoon. Some 50 buses will head to City Hall and drop off attendees who will be calling for decisive action by the federal government to create good jobs that will move the country forward, not backward. One key example that will be used is the 30/10 plan, which would give money upfront to be paid back in full later to build 12 transit lines throughout L.A. County. Mayor Villaraigosa and others will speak.
