The public is acting as early investor, putting tons of money in the development of drugs that then become privatized.

They receive no return on the investment that they have made. - @AOC
#Medicare4All
NNU Executive Director @NNUBonnie on why we can't settle for anything less than #MedicareForAll:

"The opposition, the insurance companies and pharma, will come out against anything, whether it's a half-measure or even one-quarter. We have to aim high." politico.com/story/2019/01/…

.@ucu HESCs on Pay+Equality (am)&USS JEP(pm) were intense! Lots decided after v intense complicated discussions but only morning decisions “count”- USS conference advisory as (sadly) inquorate. Those motions get referred 2 HEC as advisory but also advise negotiatiors this week /1
@ucu *🚿Shower and re-humanify interlude after a LONG day indoors at the (sadly) today unexplored @sim_manchester museum + trains. #unionstrong reps function better after 🚿☕️...*
RESUMING! TL;DR on pay+equality dispute = we're reballoting, but *not* right away: early new year to allow time to regroup+build (understanding+momentum) with commitment to improved resourcing+coordination. Returning to aggregated balloting after long, important discussion /2a

Can you imagine taking a job & working for decades for less pay because some of that money was going to be paid later as retirement income & healthcare & then being told, sorry, the money went to the bosses & none is left for you? #Miners can. @MineWorkers #UnionStrong/1
I wasn’t able to go to Columbus yesterday to rally for miners pensions & healthcare, part of their pay for years of hard & dangerous work, but I was there in spirit. #IStandWithLabor @MineWorkers #UnionStrong/2
I can’t wait to go to D.C. to fight for permanent funding so our brothers and sisters can be free to enjoy their retirement instead of spending their time rallying for what they earned and were promised. @MineWorkers #UnionStrong/end

Just came off the streets after march and rally with hotel workers of @unitehere and #publicschool teachers @uesf who just earned a pay raise thru SF’s #YesOnG ballot campaign waged with @SFDemocrats @sflabor and @TeamPelosi. People are angry and scared about #Janus.... 1/thread Christine and SF teachers union leaders marching
We marched with hundreds of hotel workers of @unitehere who are in contract negotiations with massively lucrative #SF hotel chains that will not give their workers a contract with fair wages. Message: “One Job Should be Enough” It’s NOT - and #Janus makes their lives harder. 2/ Susie Christine Rafael marching
Both the hotel workers and the teachers said the same thing: Donald Trump’s #SCOTUS sided with corporate bosses over workers, first denying protections against #sexualharassment and today denying voices in the job in #Janus. By design, TRUMP’S COURT IS HURTING WORKING PEOPLE. 3/ Local 2 Hotel Workers Union and Teachers Union leaders speak at SF rally
