Dear #LaborMovement: it’s time for us to wake up. Just about every single mass shooting, of course, happens in *somebody’s* workplace - whether perpetrated by a former colleague, a deranged terrorist or anyone else. (1)
Imagine the world we could live in if we’d joined hands and followed where @rweingarten tried to lead us after #SandyHook: a world where responsible gun owners could still take their teenagers hunting and protect their homes, but very, very few had access to weapons of war. (2)
A world where children didn’t have to practice hiding under their desks. A world where a coworker might be fired, but nobody worried that they would return to the office with an AR-15. A world where people went grocery shopping and were confident they would come home alive. (3)

Today, we recognize the strong impact the #LaborMovement has and continues to make for workers' rights in our country.

As we reflect this #LaborDay, we realize there is much work still needed to further protect unions and workers' rights.
Strong unions built the American dream for families all across the country.

We owe the 40-hour work week, paid leave, health care protections, and a collective voice in the workplace to workers who organized unions and fought for protections.
From the Industrial Revolution to the Civil Rights Movement, we have seen a significant change in workers' rights.

The fight continues – President Trump and Republicans have waged war on organizing, collective bargaining, and workers across this country.

I’m pleased that the Stop & Shop strike has ended. Workers stood strong together and demanded fair wages & benefits, and through collective action, they won. Organized labor is a vital way for workers to make their voices heard.

Throughout our history, the #LaborMovement has been the source of so many rights we take for granted: eliminating of child labor, creating of the minimum wage & the 5-day work week, workplace safety standards, & comprehensive health benefits.

In this era of extreme #IncomeInequality and tectonic shifts in the global economy, labor unions still protect the most vulnerable workers and secure rights which benefit all of us!

Sometimes it's good to review what we've accomplished so we remember what we stand for: #Thread #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #DemsWork4USA #DemPartyPlaform
The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 was enacted by Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration requiring corporations make public certain financial information, including stock sales and distribution. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #DemPartyPlaform #DemsWork4USA 2
The Social Security Act, signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935, created Social Security, a federal safety net for elderly, unemployed and disadvantaged Americans. #DemHistory #DemPartyPlaform #WhyIVoteDemocrat
