#Democrats pledge a new economic contract that raises wages and restores workers’ rights to organize, join a union, and collectively bargain. One that at last supports working families and the middle class by securing equal pay for women and paid family leave for all. 2/14

The economy is not working for the American people. In a matter of weeks, the abject failure of the Trump Admin to competently respond to the #COVID19 pandemic erased all the job gains made since the Obama/Biden Admin pulled the country out of the Great Recession 2/15

President Trump inherited the longest economic expansion in American history from the Obama-Biden Administration, and he squandered it. 3/15

Dems know that an America where many win is a stronger nation than one where very few win. We know that wealth is built where infrastructure is strong & a social contact means giving back. Learn about candidate's ideas to create more winners & less disparity in this thread #WPCM
