The United States, sadly, is the only major country on Earth that doesn't guarantee paid sick days. Pathetic. In a modern civilized society, it should be a no-brainer that if you or your family gets sick, you should have paid sick leave. End of discussion.
Here’s my message to Republican Senators who claim to be supporters of the working class: put up or shut up. https://t.co/LadouLTLg9
7 paid sick days for rail workers is not radical. https://t.co/D6mPtRIigz
You ready for a really radical idea? Firing a worker because they’re sick and can’t come to work. That’s radical. What’s not radical is guaranteeing 7 paid sick days to all rail workers in America. Let’s get it done. https://t.co/nw09ai8KjO
I agree with Sean O'Brien, President of the 1.2 million member strong @Teamsters. https://t.co/Fl0kItHN6n
The corporate greed never ends. Last year, the rail industry made a record-breaking $20 billion in profits after cutting their workforce by 30% over the last 6 years. Meanwhile, rail workers have ZERO guaranteed paid sick days. Congress must stand with rail workers.
On #BlackFriday, I stand in solidarity with Amazon workers who are on strikes & walkouts all over the world. If Amazon can afford to pay its CEO $214 million, if Jeff Bezos can afford a $500 million yacht, Amazon can afford to give workers decent raises & end its union busting.
It is beyond belief that in the year 2022 rail workers in America have zero guaranteed paid sick days. Zero. The rail industry, which made a record-breaking $20 billion in profits last year, must come to the table and negotiate a contract which treats their workers with respect.
What's going on in this country right now is class warfare. Unfortunately, the wrong side is winning. Our job now is to stand up and take on the greed of the billionaire and corporate class.
In my view, it is absurd that Howard Schultz — a guy worth some 3.7 BILLION dollars — is pulling out all the stops to deny decent wages and dignity on the job to the very Starbucks workers who helped him amass his billions. Absurd. Solidarity with the workers. #RedCupRebellion https://t.co/PnfCHpiLZB
Let me congratulate my friend @KarenBassLA on her historic victory to become Mayor of Los Angeles. Karen has the courage to take on powerful special interests and will stand up for the working families of Los Angeles. https://t.co/QUMN4i0E5O
I'm proud to stand with Starbucks workers on strike today across the country. CEO Howard Schultz is illegally union busting and firing workers for organizing. Mr. Schultz, it is time to recognize the stores that unionized and negotiate with workers in good faith. #RedCupRebellion
In state after state, the American people are standing up and demanding real change. Here are just some of the important advances we made on Election Day. https://t.co/H3bazZUgjL
I stand in strong solidarity with the 48,000 academic workers at the University of California who are on strike for higher wages, better child care benefits, and expanded paid leave. https://t.co/X46XvOaa1o
I do not think the American people should be paying the highest prices on the planet for prescription drugs.
Let's be clear. Eli Lilly should apologize for increasing the price of insulin by over 1,200% since 1996 to $275 while it costs less than $10 to manufacture. The inventors of insulin sold their patents in 1923 for $1 to save lives, not to make Eli Lilly's CEO obscenely rich. https://t.co/5ZpZkqY0f9
Congratulations to @TinaKotek on her victory in Oregon. She understands that together we must stand with working families and take on special interests to address the existential threat of climate change. https://t.co/LMUVKya8LP
I want to especially thank young people who overwhelmingly came out to vote in this midterm election. There is no doubt that your votes were decisive in critical races up and down the ballot. https://t.co/yU1jUCtDNJ
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helped us in this midterm election. https://t.co/brQ3Lp7iy2
Without the major turnout of younger voters, we would have seen a very different outcome in last night's elections. But now I am asking the younger generations: continue to stay engaged in the struggle. We have an enormous amount of work ahead of us. https://t.co/JS8ks6SwzH
