Across the street from the United States Capitol, people holding a banner are silhouetted by the sun as they join others from organizations from across the United States such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) at Upper Senate Park in Washington, D.C., Thursday, December 8, 2011, for an Interfaith Service for the Jobless, with unemployed workers and faith leaders. They are calling on Congress not to cut jobs and for the extension of unemployment insurance, which is set to expire at the end of the year unless Congress takes action.
