This Labor Day, we honor the labor movement that fought for better wages, safer working conditions, and sick days. When unions are strong, America is strong. pic.twitter.com/Dk8dpZxMdz

Trickle-down economics promised prosperity but failed America, especially Black Americans. It has exacerbated inequality and systemic barriers, making it harder to start a business, own a home, send children to school, and retire with dignity.
We're turning things around.

Biden, at the top of his remarks on the economy, noted that “it wasn’t that long ago that America was losing jobs. In fact, my predecessor was 1 of only 2 presidents in history who entered his presidency and left with fewer jobs than when he entered.” pic.twitter.com/5CNVrbBlCC

This quote from Jesse Jenkins on the Inflation Reduction Act really sums it up:
“We’ve been talking about bringing manufacturing jobs back to America for my entire life. We’re finally doing it, right? That’s pretty exciting,” he said.https://t.co/nW045xx0vA

The Biden administration is the most pro-working-class administration in my lifetime, and it's not close. https://t.co/zrMM3YTrEg

About 3.6 million additional workers would be entitled to overtime pay under a new proposal from the Biden administration.
The proposed rule would lift the cutoff for the extra earnings from its current level of $35,568 to $55,000 annually. https://t.co/fdU64JVgN8

The United States has emerged from the pandemic with the strongest economy in the world.
Thank you President Biden.
We look forward to finishing the job.

This is great news for workers, a reminder of the power and importance of collective bargaining, and another historic step in the story of the American labor movement. https://t.co/34RCOU79pF

Another positive indicator for people who work for wages:
One way you can tell that Biden's economy has been good for the working class is because the entire petite bourgeois class has been in open revolt against him for the past three years because he made it too easy for their abused workers to find better jobs and demand better pay. https://t.co/66J2MKr7eM

This is the most instructively petit-bourgeois thing ever said. The perfect encapsulation of the baron's worldview, in which workers are their rightful serfs and that higher forms of capitalism are stealing from their manor. https://t.co/UKlnOWsClz
