I don’t know if any of you are connected with his campaign… but I had a conversation today and wondered why we don’t incentivize companies to move salaries workers to a 4 day work week and/or telecommute for work.

We spend m billions of dollars on road improvement projects that never end the congestion here in California and it seems like incentivizing companies to remove 1 Day from a work schedule and/or having employees telecommute for their work would literally remove millions of single occupant vehicles from the daily transit reducing carbon emissions, creating happier and more productive employees and removing the need to throw away billions on road improvements that won’t solve the traffic issues…

“Bernie is crazy — he wants people flipping burgers to make the same per hour as a paramedic.” Wrong. Bernie understands that fast food workers deserve a living wage, and Bernie understands that the people tasked with keeping your heart beating on the way to the ER deserve better wages, too.

I've never understood this argument: "Why should we pay burger flippers the same as we pay paramedics?"

Are you kidding me?

First, anyone who works full time, whether they are flipping burgers or picking up your trash, deserve to be paid a living wage that they can survive on, not slave wages that require them to skip insulin doses or choose between rent and food.

And second, the people who are tasked with making sure your heart keeps beating on the way to the hospital — do you REALLY think that $ 15/hour is all they should be paid?

They are legitimately the people tasked with saving your freaking lives, and folks want to balk that they, too, might deserve higher pay?

Come on, now.

Everyone working full time deserves a living wage.

And the people who are tasked with life saving jobs need a raise, too.

How much of an impact does losing the Workers’ Families Party Endorsement make to Sanders’ campaign?

I've personally never even heard of the contest prior to today and some people make it out to be a significant loss, whereas some others say that it doesn't at all matter.

Will this likely give Warren the edge over Bernie?
