As the US House prepares to move 2 articles of impeachment against President Trump over the next few weeks, we thought it might be timely to highlight some of the plans being put forward by announced candidates for the presidential nomination. Perhaps most relevant to our subscribers are recently released plans by former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are in the top tier of candidates for the democratic nomination. Former VP Biden announced at a Teamsters forum in Iowa this week that as President, he would consider criminal prosecutions of employers who obstruct workers and their rights to organize! He went on to say that he would also permit the imposition of fines on individual managers who violate labor laws and claimed a 40 year war was being waged against organized labor. At the same event, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg called for an immediate increase of the federal minimum wage to $15/hour, but lamented that even $15/hour was not a sufficient wage. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren doubled down on predictable scheduling last week when she released a plan that would require all employers across the country with at least 15 employees to give at least 2 weeks advance notice of work schedules and empower workers to refuse any changes within that window. She would also require additional compensation when employees work with a less than 14 day notice.
