[Sample Letter]

Dear Ed:

Please help your fellow Americans by forcing Rep. Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee to finally schedule a mark-up hearing on HR3149: The Equal Employment for All Act. For most jobs, the legislation would make it illegal for employers to use an American’s personal credit report to hire and fire. Now, after Wall Street’s greed destroyed the economy, more than 75 million Americans have credit scores under 700 and the number is growing higher faster than ever. With only 139 million Americans currently employed, it means that more than half of the current workforce fall under a FICO score of 700. More than 26 percent of Americans have suffered a period of unemployment since 2007 and many of these Americans have taken a pay cut to become reemployed. As many as 26 million Americans who are under or unemployed are now locked out of the workplace or barred from changing jobs because of their credit reports. The numbers are now approaching the level of national catastrophe if you happen to be among the under or unemployed.

Bad credit means no job and no job equals bad credit. There is simply no way out without passage of HR3149 and there is no way to get a mark-up hearing scheduled without your audience and help. Please have members of your audience contact Barney Frank now to demand that he schedule a mark-up hearing and stop stalling he legislation.

Rep. Barney Frank
(202) 224-3121 (Congressional Switchboard)
