Quoted @bresreports

.@SenSanders says Democrats “should ignore” the parliamentarian’s ruling on minimum wage & Democrats must make it happen

NELP is in agreement with @SenSanders and in solidarity with workers across the country leading the #FightFor15, a racial and gender justice issue! Congress must deliver and we'll be there for each and every vote until this much-needed bill passes! #RaiseTheWage

Workers don't want excuses. We want the Senate to pass a $15 minimum wage and #1FairWage.

This is a critical issue of racial and gender justice that is more important than ever amid the #COVID19 pandemic. #RaiseTheWage

Tens of millions of people need the relief that’s in the #AmericanRescuePlan. But the Senate must make a critical fix: #ExtendUI to at least Oct. 3 so unemployment aid doesn’t lapse in August when Congress is on recess! Call your senators: 202-224-3121.

The 32 million workers who would benefit from the #RaiseTheWage Act need and are demanding $15 and #1FairWage, not excuses about a procedural rule that's rooted in white supremacy.

This is a racial justice issue. Tell your senators to pass $15! 888-639-5155

11.4 million people–that’s more than NYC + Chicago—will lose their pandemic unemployment insurance starting March 14 unless the Senate acts. Tell your senators to #ExtendUI to Oct. 3 in the #AmericanRescuePlan to provide #ReliefNow! Call your senators today: 202-224-3121.

ANNOUNCEMENT

We just published this Statement of Principles for Sectoral Bargaining.

Our concern is that the strong reputation for the idea, especially in the context of the fissured workplace, will make it a fig leaf for anti-worker policies.

.@RepBarbaraLee "$15/hr is the bare minimum. It's just the floor. But, right now our fight is the #FightFor15."

$15 is the BARE minimum. We cannot settle for $10 or $11. We cannot put this off any longer. #RaiseTheWage now.

In our democracy, the Vice President as leader of the Senate, or whoever is Chair, has the final say, not the parliamentarian.

Many of my colleagues and I believe we can and must deliver a $15 wage through reconciliation.

Every civil rights org should make a clear call for Dems to overrule the parliamentarian, unify & vote for COVID relief w/ $15 minimum wage. This is about racial equity & could lift over 40% of Af-Am workers out of poverty. No corporate donor or political friend should deter us.

If the Senate won't work to raise wages for tens of millions of Americans, it's time to change the way the Senate works and end the filibuster. We can’t survive on $7.25 and won’t let archaic rules with racist roots deny us the raise we so desperately need.

.@CBSSunday just featured the story of four women who worked at McDonald's, survived persistent and unwanted sexual harassment, and who fought back to sue the company. Many were teenagers when they began working and suffering harassment on the job.
