Because delivery companies classify workers as contractors & not employees, they don’t have guaranteed access to standard benefits like a minimum wage, health insurance, paid leave, unemployment & OSHA protections. This misclassification is wrong & it endangers everyone's health.
In this public health emergency, it’s more important than ever to fairly compensate delivery workers and provide them health and safety protections. I urge these delivery companies to treat their employees with the dignity and respect they deserve.
@SenMarkey & I want answers about why @DOJ_EOIR ordered immigration courts to remove @CDCgov posters with info about preventing coronavirus – & then backtracked. Fighting coronavirus requires awareness & coordination – not confusion & mixed messages. https://t.co/H6JCBK6xrJ
elizabethwarrenAAPI communities include nearly 50 diverse racial and ethnic groups, yet the aggregated data we collect hides that some AAPI families are hanging on by their fingernails. This is a civil rights issue, and I've got a plan to fix it.
elizabethwarrenI've got three older brothers—two of them are Republicans. But there's a lot we agree on, like corruption. We all agree that it's not right when the wealthy and well-connected use their influence in Washington to rewrite the rules in their favor. #WarrenTownHall
elizabethwarrenWho is our government going to work for? Will it work just for the wealthy and well-connected—or will it work for everyone? @AyannaPressley and I are fighting to put power in the hands of the people. I'm so grateful she could join me in Cedar Rapids!
The defense industry can have a seat at the table – but they shouldn’t own the table. We need to slam shut the revolving door between the Pentagon & big defense contractors like @Raytheon – @EsperDOD’s former employer. I have a bill for that.
When I asked Secretary @EsperDOD – a former top lobbyist for @Raytheon – to extend his recusal from his former employer through the duration of his tenure at the @DeptofDefense, he refused. That’s corruption, plain and simple.
elizabethwarrenBy the time I graduated high school, my folks couldn't even afford a college application—much less four years of college. High school debate gave me amazing opportunities, and it was great to meet Oklahoma’s state champions!
elizabethwarrenClimate change is an existential threat—and our coastal communities are particularly at risk as sea levels rise and storms get stronger and more destructive. The ocean must be a part of the climate solution. That's why I've got a plan for a #BlueNewDeal.
elizabethwarrenI’ve got a lot of plans to bring big, structural change to Washington. But first, there's one plan that makes it all possible: Making sure we hit our monthly fundraising goals. Can I count on you to pitch in to our grassroots movement before midnight tonight? Link in my bio.
elizabethwarren@IndivisibleTeam carries out important work organizing activism across the country and making sure our voices are heard. I’m grateful for our thoughtful conversation yesterday about how we can keep moving our country forward.
elizabethwarrenWhite supremacy, white nationalism, and corruption threaten to break our democracy beyond repair. Now more than ever, all of us must embrace the lessons of Black history to confront this challenge. #AtlantaWithWarren
elizabethwarrenLet’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations. We must be honest about our history, and do what’s right so that our nation can begin to heal. #AtlantaWithWarren
elizabethwarrenRacism props up the rich and powerful, leaving them free to take more power for themselves. And the rich and powerful aren’t going to just give away their power. If we want power, we have to fight for it. #AtlantaWithWarren
elizabethwarrenAmbassador Gordon Sondland got his job after writing a $1 million check to Donald Trump's inaugural committee. This is Washington corruption at its worst. I've pledged never to give ambassadorial positions to wealthy donors—and every candidate should do the same.
elizabethwarrenIn my first 100 days as president, I will open the doors to high-quality health care for millions of Americans. And when families compare that health care to fighting their insurance companies tooth and nail, the choice will be clear—we need #MedicareForAll. #DemDebate
elizabethwarrenWe need to ensure that everyone in this country has the opportunity to succeed. Here's what we could do with my two-cent #WealthTax: ✅ Universal Child Care and pre-k ✅ $800 billion dollars in our public schools ✅ $50 billion in #HBCUs ✅ Cancel student loan debt #DemDebate
elizabethwarrenI called @AdyBarkan to tell him that I'm so grateful to have him on @TeamWarren. I'm going to fight for Ady, Rachael, Carl, and Willow just as hard as I fight for my own family. We're going to make big, structural change, together.
elizabethwarrenDesde aumentar el salario mínimo federal hasta combatir la discriminación sistémica y proteger el derecho de las trabajadoras latinas a sindicalizarse: estoy lista para luchar desde el primer día para cerrar la brecha salarial. #LatinaEqualPayDay
elizabethwarrenI’m fighting my heart out for Rachael, for Carl, for baby Willow—and for you, @AdyBarkan. (P.S. Willow: Your dad is an inspiration. I’m so honored to know him, and to fight alongside him for a better future for all.)
