This strikes me as an interesting way to visually and spatially represent the size of those unemployed.
Tue 3/6, 8am, Bowling Green to Times Square
Artists and activists are coming together for The Line, a demonstration for jobs. The Line will be the world’s longest unemployment line, stretching over three miles along Broadway, from the bull at Wall Street to Times Square. It will include 5000+ people holding pink slips over their heads for 14 minutes, with smart and powerful statistics on the slips for handing out as messaging at the conclusion of the event.
