In their terrible time of need, we wish all Floridians the very best. But make no mistake, the damage and destruction caused by hurricanes will only get worse in the coming years if we do not address the crisis of climate change boldly and aggressively.

The UN Secretary-General is right: "The only true path to energy security, stable power prices, prosperity and a livable planet lies in abandoning polluting fossil fuels, especially coal, and accelerating the renewables-based energy transition." Defeat the Big Oil side deal.

But we don't only want to look to the past for great music. We want to put together a list of contemporary songs about the crises we face and how we can build a future that works for all of us. If you have a suggestion for a song or an artist, let me know in the replies.

The Teamsters are right: Amazon cannot be allowed to continue busting unions. If Jeff Bezos can afford a $500 million yacht he can afford to treat Amazon workers with respect, not contempt. Let’s build a union movement that can’t be stopped.
“Amazon should be afraid - the #Teamsters are here standing shoulder-to-shoulder with so many communities demanding change. The Teamsters aren’t going away. Wherever Amazon abuses workers, we’ll be there" -Teamsters General President Sean M. O'Brien: teamster.org/2022/09/1000-te… #1u

Across the country, workers in many sectors are saying, you know what? Enough is enough. You guys on top cannot continue to have it all. We need an economy that works for all of us.

It's not acceptable to me that we have more income and wealth inequality in America today than at any time since the Gilded Age.

We have a health care system in this country which puts profits ahead of care, profits ahead of quality, and profits ahead of the nurses who care for us. We need a radical transformation of our health care system.

The firing of Starbucks union leader Jaz Brisack & more than 100 other pro-union workers at Starbucks is not only shameful, it is a blatant & illegal attempt to bust the union that has won over 230 elections. I say to Howard Schultz: Obey the law. Re-instate these workers NOW.

If you're James Foote, the CEO of the CSX rail company, you rake in $20 million in total compensation. If you are a worker in the rail yards working for CSX, you know how many paid sick days you're entitled to? ZERO. Totally unacceptable.
