"Every week, my co-worker showed up with a new brace until she just stopped showing up. I know others felt the exhaustion and pain I felt. Amazon will use you until you're no longer necessary." This is why Amazon workers strike!

If you work 40 hours a week, you should NOT be living in poverty, you SHOULD be earning at least $15 an hour. RT if you agree.

It’s appalling that the ratio of CEO to average worker pay is higher in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world. Corporations don’t need more tax cuts that they can spend on stock buybacks and executive pay. They need to start investing in the workers.

In the past forty years, CEO pay has skyrocketed while worker pay has barely budged when adjusting for inflation. Strong unions, raising the minimum wage, and expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit will help us begin to solve our historic challenge of inequality.

The next time an executive at Mcdonald's or Walmart says that they can’t afford to pay their workers more, ask them why their CEOs are paid over 1000 times as much as the median employee.

There may be five people on the stage, but their words tonight are representative of the over 40 million people in this country who live in poverty. This is the richest country on the face of the planet, this is immoral, and it is entirely unacceptable.

30 million people have zero health insurance—that's bad. But there are millions more in Cynthia's position, who have insurance but can't afford to use it. We need to guarantee healthcare to everyone—totally free at use.
