In 2017, Republicans passed a tax bill that provides 83% of the benefits to the top 1% & tried taking healthcare away from 32 million people. On Saturday, Democrats voted to provide 86% of Americans with direct payments & cash benefits to 93% of kids. Elections have consequences.

Right-wing Republicans in CA are trying to recall @GavinNewsom for the crime of telling people to wear masks and for listening to scientists during COVID. Extremist Republicans have done enough to undermine democracy already. We must all unite to oppose the recall in California.

Today, 56 years on from Bloody Sunday, it is absurd that we are still fighting for the right to vote. Not only is it our duty to keep fighting to end voter suppression in all its forms — we must also work to expand our democracy and make it easier for all our people to vote.

The American Rescue Plan is the most significant piece of legislation to benefit working people in the modern history of this country. https://t.co/bRcOAqJwKG

Where was Republicans' concern for the deficit when they gave over a trillion dollars in tax breaks to the rich and large corporations? The bill we are fighting for right now is the most significant piece of legislation for working families that Congress has passed in decades. https://t.co/knwAzjYwOn

In my mind, the great economic crisis that we face today is half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck. And many millions of workers are, frankly, working for starvation wages. Raising the minimum wage is what the American people want, and it's what we have got to do.

There is not one state in our country where you can make ends meet on the current federal minimum wage. Not one! How quickly would Congress raise the minimum wage if they were forced to live on $7.25 an hour? Outrageous.

There is nowhere — I repeat, NOWHERE — in the United States where a full-time worker being paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 can make ends meet. That is a disgrace. It is far past time that we raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and give millions of workers a raise.

Of the 32 MILLION workers who would benefit from raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour:
- 59% are women
- 31% are Black
- 26% are Latino
This is not just about economic justice — raising the minimum wage would significantly narrow the gender and racial pay gap. Let's do it.

40 years ago today, I won my first election to become Mayor of Burlington by just 10 votes. 10 votes. Do not ever let anyone convince you of the notion that your vote does not matter. Your vote matters and we need you to stay involved in the political process. https://t.co/KnmVtyvAh0

I say to the Walton family of Walmart: the American people are sick and tired of subsidizing your greed. Pay your workers a living wage. https://t.co/fO15Fv08wD

Why should the taxpayers, many of whom are struggling economically as a result of the pandemic, subsidize the starvation wages being paid at Walmart? The owners of Walmart got $50 BILLION richer during the pandemic. They can afford to pay workers a living wage.

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. https://t.co/DftFAaESey

Sadly, the Republican Party has turned its back on democracy and evolved into an authoritarian party – suppressing the vote, pushing big lies and conspiracy theories. Too many Americans have fought and died to defend our democratic way of life. We cannot and will not fail them.

Walmart, the largest employer in America, is owned by the richest family in America. Their wealth has gone up $50 billion during the pandemic, and they spend millions on themselves. But the company they own starts workers off at $11 an hour. That is outrageous. https://t.co/NbKkuZjz5a

I strongly disagree with the parliamentarian’s ruling about the minimum wage. But the people are demanding an end to starvation wages in America. We will not give up. We must get this done. https://t.co/qt6mYJU7fl

RT @JuanForRep: I am inspired daily by how Congresswoman @AyannaPressley represents her communities w/ moral clarity in Congress & am deeply humbled by her support.

Raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour would benefit 32 million workers and would give low-wage workers an extra $3,300 a year.

I'll say that again. Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would benefit 32 MILLION workers. Let's get it done.
