BREAKING: Liberal and Labor are gagging debate in the Senate to rush thru a bill that allows public money to be spent on new coal and gas projects. WTF, Labor. Why are you siding with the Libs to gag debate & use public money to fast-track climate collapse?

BREAKING: Labor votes with Libs to enable **public money** to go to **new** coal and gas projects. In a climate crisis, Lib & Lab hand your $ to coal and gas corporations to make the crisis worse. Remember this when you hear Labor talk about climate in their Budget reply. #qt

Franklin count over. Dean Winter elected 3, David O'Byrne 4 and Nic Street 5. Winter's the man state Labor didn't want on its ticket. And Nic Street finishes one higher than at previous elections. #politas 

We’ve just launched Labor’s Women’s Budget Statement, our comprehensive look at how the Liberals’ Budget affects women. To deliver Budgets that work for all Australians, we need to think about the different ways men + women live their lives + the impact policies can have on them.

Everyone is very spun up about the FPUC fight right now if you think that’s what’s constraining labor supply it’s actually a pretty bullish case — many states are cancelling it and the FPUC Effect if any will start fading soon and vanish in four months.

If your "why is the birthrate decreasing" story doesn't talk about student debt, untenable childcare and healthcare costs, housing costs, patriarchy & the enduring unequal distribution of labor in the home it is not a good "why is the birthrate decreasing" story

When I graduated college in 1968, the typical corporate CEO got 20 times the pay of the average worker. When I became labor secretary in 1993, the ratio was 61-to-1. Today, the ratio is 320-to-1. Capitalism is off the rails.

BREAKING: The Department of Labor just proposed a rule that aims to let government contractors fire workers who are LGBTQ, or who are pregnant and unmarried, based on the employers’ religious views. This is taxpayer-funded discrimination in the name of religion. Period.

This Labor Day, let’s thank all those who've kept our country going this year—nurses, teachers, delivery drivers, food service workers, and many more. We can honor them by building our system back even better—so that essential workers are treated like it, pandemic or not.

It might be Labor Day weekend, but let’s all remember that we're still in the middle of a pandemic. Wear a mask, practice social distancing, and follow the experts. It’ll save lives.

If a hospital worker can wear a mask nonstop during a 10-hour shift. If women can wear masks during labor. You can wear a mask while running an errand.

As a former secretary of labor, I can tell you that we shouldn't be talking about stimulating the economy or going back to work. We should be talking about shutting down the economy and keeping people home, with enough money so they can pay their bills. THREAD.

Socialism is a scare word they've hurled at every advance the people have made. Socialism is what they called public power, social security, deposit insurance, and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for anything that helps all people. --Harry Truman, 1952

As a former secretary of labor, I can tell you that the airlines don't deserve a $50 billion bailout. In the last 10 years, they spent 96% of their cash flow to buy back shares of their own stock in order to boost executive bonuses. They shouldn't see a dime of taxpayer money.

I can’t get over the concept that women birthed every man. So every misogynist was brought into the world from the labor of a woman. The hate really is mind blowing
