"Recent data about the spread of COVID in the U.S. is extremely concerning...emerging strains of the coronavirus appear to be more transmissible, deadlier and more resistant to vaccines...states w aggressive reopening plans pose a serious risk to safety."
JUST IN: Sanders vows to force vote on $15 minimum wage this week
At a time when millions of workers are earning starvation wages, when the minimum wage has not been raised by Congress since 2007 and stands at a pathetic $7.25 an hour, it is time to raise the minimum wage to a living wage.
Manchin ally says Senator has received no pressure or lobbying from WH to vote for the Covid19 bill with the minimum wage attached. Good for Manchin. Malfeasance at WH. No calls, horse trading, or effort to find out what would get Manchin on board? Good grief. Beyond absurd.
BREAKING: The first @UPS truck carrying the Johnson & Johnson vaccine just arrived at the Worldport hub in Louisville. More trucks carrying the vaccine will arrive throughout the day. Deliveries start TOMORROW.
And there's a union driver behind the wheel. Thank you @teamsters and every union member working to make, transport and deliver vaccines

While Walmart refuses to raise its $11 minimum wage, Alice Walton had no problem purchasing a $500 million private art collection, buying a $25 million 2-floor Park Avenue condo with 52 windows and acquiring a $22 million 4,400-acre Texas ranch. Something is very wrong here.
The Biden admin is reopening the detention camp for migrant kids in Homestead, Florida. This camp was shut down in 2019. My collaborative research with @afscfl @WeCount_Fl @Earthjustice shows that the site is contaminated with military waste (1/5)

Senators arguing against raising the minimum wage make $174,000 a year.
The minimum wage is now $7.25 an hour, or $15,000 a year.
That’s not a living wage. Raising it to $15 will lift millions out of poverty.
Americans don’t care how it gets done, just that we do it. ASAP.
What will happen with the new variants in the US?
Depends on what we do: Stay the same, or shut down to stop them.
Here are projections for a few states.
Projections are rough but the basic shape is sound.
Starting from California.
