In the 1980s and 1930s, unemployed councils of various sorts were 
important vehicles for demanding progressive change around jobs and 
unemployment.  With unemployment the highest in 26 years, there are 
about 20 million Americans unemployed, underemployed, anxiously employed.  

I'd be interested in hearing about examples and models of organizing and 
mobilizing the unemployed.
