Progressives are saying the best way to beat a Trumpified GOP is to pass bold policies on childcare, wages, expanded healthcare, prescription drug prices, broadband, clean tech jobs that actually improve lives of those left behind! Nothing inconsistent! https://t.co/2pHFLfIBqn

The left needs to recognize UBI as a huge bargaining power boost to demand higher wages, and better hours + work conditions.
The right needs to recognize UBI as a huge productivity boost that will grow the economy to new heights and eliminate unnecessary labor costs and demands.

Too often, economic growth means jobs, wages, and innovation in only a few specific parts of our country.
We aren’t going to leave the rest of America behind. My Endless Frontier Act would make sure innovation fuels growth in rural America, too.

Hey @marcorubio, you’re the one being anti-work. Because the monthly CTC is in addition to wages, unlike welfare that’s lost with wages, the CTC makes all work pay, including the unpaid work of childcare which the CTC both supports and enables. Thus you’re also being anti-family. https://t.co/nD4GXohn4q

PepsiCo (who owns Frito-Lay) paid its CEO $ 18.3 million and raked in more than $ 4.2 billion in sales last year, but can’t find the money to give its workers fair wages or time off?
84-hour workweeks and starvation wages are atrocious.
I urge you: Don’t cross the picket line. https://t.co/bdBSfije6j

A lack of competition drives down wages for workers. We need to change that.
