HAPPENING NOW: Downtown Detroit security officers, joined by Local 1 janitors, are ON STRIKE outside the First National Building to protest threats of retaliation they’ve faced for coming together on the job for a better future! #OneDetroit #UnionsForAll #StandForSecurity

The security officers who keep Downtown Detroit's billion-dollar buildings safe are struggling to support their families. I stand with them as they fight for a voice on the job and the benefits they need.

We marched this afternoon with thousands of supporters to demand more for kids and educators!

#IamISTA
#RedForEd

Teachers shouldn't have to fight for adequate resources for their students. But across the country the #RedforEd movement has shown that when teachers and communities are organized, they can win. To the students, parents and teachers of Indiana, we are with you.

Your $8.99 Netflix subscription is more than the company paid in federal income taxes last year (nothing).

We are going to make massive corporations finally pay their fair share.

Young people from Immokalee are leading chants in front of the offices of @Wendys leaders, calling for the fast food giant to combat sexual violence in its supply chain by joining the @fairfoodprogram! Want to cheer them on? Join the National #BoycottWendys Call-in Day!

I stood with Immokalee farmworkers in 2008, fighting for better working conditions. I stand with them now. I say to @Wendys, join the @fairfoodprogram and protect workers from sexual violence and forced labor.

In 1965 the CEO-to-worker pay ratio was 20:1.

Last year, it was 287:1.

We are going to end this greed and the rigged system that leaves the working class behind.

This is some good news on Climate Action Thanks to the Iowa City Climate Strikers for leading the charge & to Iowa City for stepping up. #ClimateChange #ClimateAction #ClimateStrike #ClimateEmergency #ClimateCrisis

When we organize, we win. When we fight for each other, we win. I am proud to stand with climate strikers in Iowa City and around the country.

Over and over, the corporate establishment has tried to convince people that we have no chance.

Well, we just passed 4 million individual contributions—faster than any campaign in history.

That's a pretty powerful movement and we are ready to take on the billionaire class.

This is really sad and I hope it doesn’t happen.

Sean is absolutely right. Closing down Minor League teams, like the Vermont Lake Monsters, would be a disaster for baseball fans, workers, and communities across the country. We must protect these teams from corporate greed.

It’s time the government had the backs of family farmers instead of doing favors for corporate agriculture monopolies. When we are in the White House we will revitalize rural America by fighting for working people and farmers, not big agri-business.

We are the fastest campaign in history to reach 4 million donations.

We are the only campaign with more donations and donors than Trump.

Our campaign is historic because we have millions of people ready to take on the corporate elite and transform this country.

The City Council of Montpelier, Vermont, has voted to pay a living wage on city projects like bridges and roads. Congratulations to Vermont workers who fought for this change. Every worker in America deserves decent wages and decent benefits.

Thank you @UTLAnow for your endorsement. It means the world to me. Together, we are going to ensure teachers across this country have the compensation, the respect and the dignity they deserve.

The federal minimum wage at the beginning of the decade vs. the federal minimum wage at the end of the decade.

We need a living minimum wage of at least $15 an hour.

Amazon made $11,200,000,000 in profits last year.

Its federal income tax bill: ZERO.

It is simply not true that we cannot afford to invest in housing or health care or education.

We will make massive corporations finally pay their fair share.

UE Local 255 members are now working without a contract. It's time for @HungerMtnCoop management & council to uphold their values by signing a #faircontractnow with an equitable pay raise, healthcare & job security. Corporate greed has no place in a community-owned grocery.

.@HungerMtnCoop workers deserve a fair contract with health care, job security and fair pay. I am proud to stand with @ueunion and the workers who are fighting for what they deserve.

“It’s time that we become the party of FDR again.

It’s time for us to become the party of the Civil Rights Act again.

It’s time for us to become the party that fights for queer liberation again, the anti-war party, a party that establishes peace and prosperity.” -@AOC
