Elizabeth Warren's Plan For Higher Wages

Elizabeth Warren released her very progressive labor platform.

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks.

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren just released her labor platform for her presidential campaign. It’s an eye-popping 14 pages long.

Warren makes a long list of promises to close every loophole and fix every broken policy that has kept working families from getting ahead in the post-recession economy. Oh, and she wants to give workers new rights too, such as the right for gig workers to unionize.

“We cannot have a truly democratic society with so little power in the hands of working people,” she writes in her plan. “We cannot have sustained and inclusive economic growth without a stronger labor movement.”

The timing is key. Warren is releasing her proposal the day before a big presidential forum hosted by the Service Employees International Union. SEIU represents about 2 million janitors, home care workers, security guards, and childcare workers — and candidates have been jockeying for the union’s prized endorsement."
