MoveOn activists are fanning out today in Bay Area cities including Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, San Rafael, Daly City, San Carlos, Livermore and Castro Valley to hand out “Romney-Ryan pink slips” symbolizing jobs they say would be lost if the GOP presidential ticket prevails.

It’s part of a nationwide effort in several hundred cities.

“Romney’s and Ryan’s policies will destroy more than one million jobs in 2013 alone and will seriously undermine workers’ and women’s rights across the nation,” MoveOn organizer and council member Mary Swain of Castro Valley said in a news release.

“We want leaders who will create new jobs here in the U.S., reform our tax laws, and limit military spending in order to rebuild our struggling economy,” she said. “We have to do all in our power to save our social safety-net programs, like Social Security and Medicare, and bring the democratic process back to America.”
