Been at Rikers since 9 am. Still here. All the stories are true. Horrific is an understatement. We must close this place.

Thank you, @ReElectNydia !
BREAKING: I just led 10 of my NYC colleagues in writing to @SpeakerPelosi stressing the final Build Back Better Act MUST include $80B for public housing repairs nationwide. We cannot turn our backs on those living in increasingly poor housing units in the richest country ever.

Yes.
Normalize talking to your co-workers about what’s going on at work. Conversations between workers are the first step toward organizing for better working conditions. #1u

A reminder that we are at A MONTH of our taxi worker neighbors rallying in front of City Hall demanding the Mayor support a real debt relief plan put forth by the @NYTWA. When workers are united, workers win. WE WILL WIN, join us at Broadway and Murray Street near City Hall! ✊🏽

I love your uncle now.
I got to tell my uncle today that I just paid off a private student bar-prep loan he co-signed for me over a decade ago.

So leave the Democratic Party then? Run on another line. Show some action. I mean then you’d be at risk of losing your seat and we know you won’t do that.

Started the day by joining @SaruJayaraman for the release of her book, One Fair Wage: Ending Subminimum Pay in America with my sister in the fight to end poverty, @yuhline! As former tipped workers we know the struggle and will fight alongside workers to get it done in NY.

It’s official: @GovKathyHochul says she will NOT endorse in the Buffalo Mayor’s race before the general election. @Indiawaltonbflo won the Democratic Primary in June, but @MayorByronBrown is running anyway as a write-in candidate.

Serious question: If essential workers are essential to keeping the economy going, why is it not essential to pay them a living wage?

“When you all get back to the offices, tell them that Tony wants something done.” @GovKathyHochul, Tony wants an end to the subminimum wage. We’ve got to get it done.

Thank you to Tony who is giving a powerful testimony on the experiences of workers like himself who continue to earn subminimum wages. @GovKathyHochul we need justice for workers like Tony. End the subminimum wage now.
