I posted this in another subreddit. I thought here would be appropriate as well.

What is Bernie Sanders going to do for me so far as job protections and being able to be hired in the first place?

A little about myself,

I'm a transgender black man living in Virginia. I moved here from California late last year. I mostly left because of the cost of living. It was just not affordable on my wage even though I receive disability from the VA, but the state politics were enough for me to maintain employment. Obviously I'm a veteran(I don't support imperialism. I was a poor black kid living in a segregated bigoted town in FL and didn't know what else to do to escape). I have a B.Sc in accounting and while I was on active duty, I was an electrician. While in California, I worked a few data entry jobs and accounts receivable.

Since moving to VA, I haven't been able to find a steady employment. I've had 1 temp job since I moved here. It only lasted for three months. I have interviewed about 20+ times and I've yet to be hired. This would be totally fine if I was applying to jobs I am not qualified for. I've applied for retail, fast food, accounts receivable, accounts payable, bookkeeping, a carwash, maintenance, apprenticeships etc. I don't care, I just need some money. I have a partner whom I'm married to and two dogs. We are doing OK with the money we get from the VA. We don't go out or eat out. We cook everyday.

Anyway, after the background check for the jobs I have applied fo are complete, they aren't calling me back. Even though they tell me if everything comes back fine they'll call me back or the job is mine. I know it's because they can see that I've changed my name from a feminine one to a masculine one. The background check is basically outing me as trans and I have no idea what to do. Some days I just want to give up on life completely.

I just want to know what Bernie has planned for addressing this. Ive tried to look online but I haven't found anything substantial and most of the people I ask this question just ignore me or block me(I'm thinking about traveling to a town hall with the hopes of being able to ask him myself). I need a candidate who I feel like is looking out for me.

Imagine if Bernie Sanders said or did this. Elizabeth Warren will do this in General Election. This is Joe Biden, straight from the horses mouth! “If you go out and bundle $250K for me and then you call me after I’m elected … I’m gonna say come on in.” https://t.co/1k6DdJXdmX

Some people think the media doesn’t have a bias towards the wealthy, or that Bernie is too wealthy to care about the working class. So I made this table comparing Bernie’s net worth against the average family, other Democrats, and the heads and reporters of media companies. [OC]

Loneliness among the elderly is one of the most heartbreaking and inhumane pathologies of modern America, and our default solution – relying on private-sector initiative – just isn’t fixing it. God bless Bernie for stepping up on this. [Bernie’s “Right to a Secure Retirement”]

This story is the kind of thing that makes me want to go with Bernie [healthcare: UVA predatory level collections and insane policies]

I haven't decided yet, long road ahead….but this story brings me back to many things I've heard Sanders say.

Not only is healthcare simple unaffordable, the system is fully corrupt.

Keep in mind, UVA is a non-profit, government funded, hospital system…

The medical center, the flagship of UVA Health System, earned $ 554 million in profit over the six years ending June 2018, and holds stocks, bonds and other investments worth $ 1 billion, according to financial statements. CEO Sutton-Wallace makes $ 750,000, with bonus incentives that could push her annual pay close to $ 1 million, according to a copy of her employment contract, obtained under public information law.

but more….

Insurance companies get a 70% discount on procedures, but a normal person is lucky to get 15%?

Full story:https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/uva-has-ruined-us-health-system-sues-thousands-of-patients-seizing-paychecks-and-putting-liens-on-homes/2019/09/09/5eb23306-c807-11e9-be05-f76ac4ec618c_story.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab

My friends from other countries see this and honestly laugh at us and feel sorry for us. Keep fighting the good fight Bernie, I hope you win.

Our chances to get Bernie nominated are about 14% right now: https://electionbettingodds.com/DemPrimary2020_week.html

We are rising again, but our chances are still low. Everybody has to get on board this time to make it happen. Plan on canvassing and phone banking. Now. Let`s change our future together!
