We must all remember what we are truly witnessing here - racism fueled from the White House that continues to permeate both legislation and language in this country. Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Monday Oct 21 - 1:31pm My bill to #StopWallStreetLooting would hold private equity firms responsible for their companies – including in the health industry. And Congress should pass #MedicareForAll so nobody goes broke paying a medical bill that pads the pockets of insurance execs & Wall St bankers. Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Monday Oct 21 - 1:31pm Almost 2/3 of US hospitals outsource physician staffing, many to companies owned by private equity firms. @RepMarkPocan, @RepLloydDoggett & I want to know more about the role those firms play in the sharp rise in surprise out-of-network medical bills. Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Monday Oct 21 - 1:31pm Nobody having a heart attack or stroke picks their ambulance or ER doc. But when a hospital outsources its physician staffing or ambulance services to a private-equity-owned company, patients can get stuck with outrageous medical bills. It's obscene. https://t.co/erxknVm9sw Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am Sec. @BetsyDeVosED has given a free pass to every swindler & crook trying to make a buck off America’s students & teachers. Now she’s choking the program designed to help keep teachers from getting crushed by decades of debt. I'll say it again, Sec. DeVos: do your job or resign. Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am I’ll give you one guess who’s responsible for obstructing student debt relief for teachers & other public servants. (Hint: it’s the Secretary of Education who doesn’t believe in public education.) https://t.co/KH0UBu1nFY Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am But most borrowers never got the help. Last month, @USGAO reported @usedgov is STILL rejecting 99% of Temporary Expanded PSLF applications. The Trump admin has only spent 3.8% of the emergency funding Congress set aside to help public service borrowers. https://t.co/ssFYyVS0Cy Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am I’ve been fighting to fix the PSLF problem from the moment I heard about it – & I led the expansion of PSLF funding by $700 million over 2 years to forgive the student loan balances of people caught in this mess & enrolled in the wrong program. https://t.co/slRcfRQGzZ Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am Starting in 2007, our country made a promise to public servants: pay your student loans for 10 years & the balance would be wiped out. But as the 10-year point hit, people who thought they were enrolled in PSLF discovered they weren’t. It’s a nightmare. https://t.co/bjJzLY63NV Elizabeth Warren 2 days ago:   Sunday Oct 20 - 10:25am Secretary @BetsyDeVosED & the Trump admin wrecked the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program for teachers & other public servants. @usedgov needs to explain why borrowers aren’t getting the help Congress made available & how they're planning to fix this. https://t.co/KKb20Ga3PA

🗓️ No retaliation against workers who ask for schedule changes
🗓️ Workers have a right to rest between shifts Elizabeth Warren 5 days ago:   Thursday Oct 17 - 8:14pm More than half of hourly workers get their work schedules with less than a week’s notice, making it tough to go to school, keep child care, & pay the bills.

That charter can be revoked if a company has egregious & repeated illegal conduct.

✅Requires workers to elect 40% of board
✅Restricts board & execs’ company stock sales
✅Requires 75% of execs & shareholders' approval for political expenditures Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Friday Oct 11 - 3:35pm Year after year, corporate profits soar for executives & shareholders – but workers’ wages barely budge.
