🥁 DRUM ROLL PLEASE... 🥁
Y'all, the new #HousingPlaybook is FINALLY here! 🎉
#Housing is a human right, and we believe that housing policy must guarantee that everyone has a safe, affordable place to thrive.
No matter what.
If the Biden-Harris admin and new Congress want to prioritize racial justice and equity in COVID-19 relief and long term, safe and reliable housing is the cornerstone of economic security. This is a blueprint for how to help move the country toward that vision. #HomeIsEssential
As lawmakers investigate ties between Capitol Police and White supremacists, they must also investigate long-standing allegations of racism within its ranks.
My latest op-ed about racism and Congress for @thedailybeast
@JamaalBowmanNY @CoriBush @AOC
I've read many accounts. First time I have heard from the families of Echol Cole and Robert Walker, the workers whose deaths sparked the strike. Very moving. @Org_Up @NBWCP @UCBLaborCenter @IRLEUCB @BillFletcherJr @dorianwarren @SEIUhciimk @NelpNews
The union representing 1,400 workers at Hunts Point Produce Market in the Bronx reaches tentative agreement to end their six-day strike
The employers agree to the deal with the @Teamsters after @AOC rallied the community behind the strikers @clauirizarry
President-elect Joe Biden plans to sign 17 executive actions today in the Oval Office including:
-National mask mandate
-Establish a WH COVID-19 team
-Cease withdrawal from WHO
-Restore national security pandemics office
-Extend pause on student loan payments and interest
Glad to see the Biden-Harris admin start their #First100Days with EOs that address the #COVID19 crisis & undo some of the Trump admin's xenophobic immigration policies. Looking forward to seeing action on criminal justice reform & holding corporate enablers of racism accountable.
And now as @chrislhayes makes it a conversation among pundits AFTER HAVING THE WH COMMS DIRECTOR ON both @ezraklein and @AdamSerwer (both of whom I like) are fretting...after 72 hours in power...that Democrats "still don't get it".
This is what pisses your audience off, @MSNBC
We were clearly talking about the senate and the filibuster, but I’m not going to sugar coat anything now that Biden is in office. If you’re expecting that you’re definitely going to be disappointed.
Another big win for workers today! @JoeBiden is leading by example by putting 70,000+ federal contract workers on a path to $15/hr. Today’s executive action shows he's listening to working people demanding to respected, protected and paid so they can provide for their families.
I spend a lot of time looking in detail at abusive situations where tech plays a starring role: stalkerware, bossware, remote proctoring, etc. But nothing I'd read really prepared me for the tale of @arisevsinc, an abuser without parallel.
"The contours of chickenization are impossible to miss: it's a shifting of all the risk frm the employer's side of the balance sheet to the workers'..."
Just like the finance industry, where the investor takes all the risk.
In today’s NYT, @claudiasahm argues for an expanded use of automatic stabilizers as part of any new fiscal package. There seems to be consensus building with @JanetYellen, @BrianDeeseNEC and even the President speaking about stabilizers. Brief thread
Crucial to consider automatic stabilizers in fiscal policy. State & local aid, stimulus payouts, etc. should be designed as automatic stabilizers like Medicaid & UI
