Even after the increase, the Real Living Wage is still higher than the government's falsely named 'National Living Wage', which is actually just #MinimumWage for over 23yos. livingwage.org.uk/news/real-livi…

@LivingWageUK #UK
If you live in London, or are under 23, the difference is even worse.
*23 or under, I should say

23 is ridiculously old to not even be entitled to full minimum wage. If you go to university, that is two years most people graduate. Otherwise, you will have been out of full time education for 5 years already. Neither young people, nor their...

👉TIME FOR ACTION
The #CostOfLivingCrisis is hitting people of all ages and backgrounds. We and Brighton's Emergency Food Network have had enough. We have sent a letter to national gov with 12 emergency action points

🚨 1 - The uplift in benefits that is tabled for the Spring Budget is in line with the true cost of #inflation

We need an increase of 7% or higher, not the outdated 3.1% tabled from data produced last September
🚨 2 - the £20 #UniversalCredit uplift is removed

Household costs have not reduced since the pandemic, in fact they are increasing. The Universal Credit uplift being removed is leaving families with LESS than before.

What the Child Tax Credit fight says about America - @DrRichBesser & @DAcevedoGarcia - The Hill bit.ly/3Kxdq1U

#ChildTaxCredit #InvestInKids #CutChildPoverty (1)
On Child Tax Credit expiration:

“no help came this past week because we let the expanded credit expire during an unprecedented surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and with prices rising on everything from groceries to utility bills.” - @DrRichBesser @DAcevedoGarcia (2)
“The expanded credit kept at least 3 million children out of poverty every month between July and November, leading to a 30 percent decline in child poverty rates overall.” - @DrRichBesser @DAcevedoGarcia

Believe it or not, I am also #French. Proud of #EU2022FR. Too many debats about the presence of 🇪🇺 at #ArcDeTriomphe. Something valid in "noblesse oblige" To annoy Ms #LePen, I illustrate my thread below with a #photo taken during my visit of the largest heros cemetery in #EU 1/1 Image
Nobless oblige! #EU2022FR Almost 400 events relating to #France’s presidency will take place across the next six months...political meetings, cultural programmes and citizens’ events. Thematic summits will also be organised in various #French cities. 1/2
#EU presidency will be an opportunity for #France to “boost its influence in #Europe”. #EU2022FR 1/3

We all ♥️ #Paris where were it took place 1st presentation of incoming French Presidency to @EESC_PRESS! #PFUE2022 @CBeaune underlined this rare & precious opportunity, highlighting France's ambition to mark progress on #EU legislation, #climate #digitalisation #socialpolicy 1/1
The red thread of #PFUE2022 would be "Recovery, Power, Belonging" (“Relance, puissance, appartenance”). France would not impose an agenda, but would serve as an accelerator for the way forward on ideas and dossiers. #EU #Europe 1/2
#Recovery”- in economic terms, after the Covid pandemic; "#Power" - in terms of #security, external relations, #defence, #migratory policy, climate; and "#Belonging" - feeling of being part of the common #European political project. 1/3

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

He @Booker4KY, want any ammo to go after @RandPaul for stuff that's useless? Because this can help.
I mean from a Self-declared "#Libertarian", who seriously isn't he's #SocialConservative at best, it's not hard to dig up dirt on @RandPaul of his Voting Records. Like the 2016 Tax Bill that gave more money to the #Rich, Supports Banning #Abortion (which isn't Libertarian),...
Opposes #LGBTQIA Rights like Same Sex Marriage & wanted it to be banned, Rand is inconsistent on #MilitarySpending of sometimes leaning to not for it or for it in offensive wars (which many Libertarians call that out & believe in Defense of a Direct Threat of an Attack)...

y'all ready to learn about inequality?

Unc @wkamaubell, @CNNOriginals and @ZPZProduction take us to South Carolina to see what decades of inequality can do to communities and show us some folks doing the hard work to protect those who need it.

The #First100Days of a president’s term are historically their best chance to enact their agenda. What has Biden done?
Biden and Harris promised to implement a public option and lower the age of Medicare to 60, policies that fail to cover the 92 million Americans who are uninsured or underinsured and save the 68,000 who die every year from a lack of insurance. #MedicareForAll
But Biden and the Democrats didn’t even live up to these moderate pledges. Instead, they expanded COBRA subsidies, funneling tens of billions of dollars to health insurance corporations that are already making record profits as they jack up premiums and increasingly deny claims.

For nearly a decade, the Roosevelt Institute has called on policymakers to rewrite the rules of our economy—to make it fairer, more inclusive, and more productive.

The #AmericanJobsAct is a major step toward doing that. bit.ly/3mdAsiQ
For generations, policymakers used the power of the state to redistribute income upward and remove economic decisions from the democratic process.
This market-oriented approach failed to generate sustainable livelihoods for most Americans, especially for communities of color and those globalization abandoned. bit.ly/3ugr2WC

! Bernie Sanders announces *PLAN B* to raise wages: Take tax breaks away from big companies that fail to pay $15 an hour + incentives for smaller companies.

#MinimumWage
This is more likely to comply with reconciliation rules and *might* (?) just be more amenable to skeptics like Manchin.
Taxing companies who don't pay the wage = *pretty darn close* to mandating the wage.

Think of the individual mandate penalty. The mandate is still in court, but what people really care about is the *penalty tax.*

*Parliamentarian OK'd changing penalty tax to zero in '17*

To those who support #FightFor15, increasing the #MinimumWage and reducing #IncomeInequality: By 2025, the wage would have to be ~$20 to equal the $15 asked for when this began.

That's why we need to stop talking about a "minimum" wage and start talking about an #AmericanWage.
An #AmericanWage is the wage needed to provide for the basic needs of American life.

It clarifies to people of any political alignment or value system, that wages are meant to provide a standard of living adequate to all Americans.
Yes, cost of living varies by state. But the purpose of the #AmericanWage is to establish a baseline for what your wage buys, not an arbitrary number lacking the consideration of determining what that wage buys.

Yes, a worker in West Virginia needs less than someone in New York.

This is a GREAT argument to pull up when talking to people about minimum wage. Some others nested below
A large number of new jobs being created are minimum to low wage, so looking for a new job generally won’t increase pay.
Raising minimum wage helps things not directly related.

Helps Infant mortality? Yup.

Lowers Suicide? Yup.

Reduce smoking rates? You bet.

For the small number of people who are not totally sick of #minimumwage threads, let me walk you through some of the @UW team's findings for #Seattle now that they've cleared peer review (conditionally accepted, AEJ:EP).

A lot of them are packed into this one picture.
This isn't the analysis that used Synthetic Seattle and counted up the number of jobs paying under some threshold, except it couldn't count jobs at multi-location firms.

This is a longitudinal analysis of individual workers working for low pay in Washington as of early 2015.
We follow these workers and tally up all their jobs, hours, and earnings. Multiple jobs? They all count. Switch to a multi-location employer? That jobs and its hours and earnings count.

We difference their experiences 2x: from workers elsewhere in WA & earlier cohort.
