    • Veto the Cold-Hearted Health Bill
      Donald Trump is right. The House health insurance bill is “mean, mean, mean,” as he put it last week. He correctly called the measure that would strip health insurance from 23 million Americans “a son of a bitch.” The proposal is not at all what Donald Trump promised Americans. He said that under his administration, no one would lose […]
    • Trump reversal of Obama-era labor rule is great news for corporations
      A transgender woman is suing McDonald’s and the owner of the franchised restaurant she worked for after allegedly experiencing sexual harassment and discrimination. La’Ray Reed said a coworker asked if she were a “boy or girl,” “top or bottom,” or what her “role” was “in the bedroom.” She said she was groped and spied on while using […]
    • Seattle's $15 minimum wage raised pay with zero effect on restaurant jobs, new study shows
      Raising the minimum wage does not kill jobs, no matter what Republicans tell you—and a new study of the Seattle restaurant industry, where some businesses are already paying a $15 minimum wage, provides another data point showing just that. According to the University of California, Berkeley, study, the increased minimum wage had employment effects that were […]
    • The House GOP health care bill is a job killer, says a new report
       In addition to potentially increasing the number of uninsured by 23 million and being unequivocally unpopular, House Republicans’ Obamacare replacement plan could leave nearly a million people unemployed. That’s according to a new study published Wednesday by the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University and The Commonwealth Fund projects, which finds that the U.S. economy could […]
    • Fox News faces new legal trouble for sexual harassment
      The New York State Division of Human Rights (SDHR) is investigating Fox News for claims of sexual harassment and retaliation, according to attorney Lisa Bloom. Bloom told ThinkProgress over the phone that a human rights specialist at the agency confirmed the investigation to her on Friday. According to Bloom, the agency has spoken to one […]
    • Tell the Labor Department Not to Repeal the Persuader Rule
      The Labor Department issued a proposal on Monday that would rescind the union-buster transparency rule, officially known as the persuader rule, designed to increase disclosure requirements for consultants and attorneys hired by companies to try to persuade working people against coming together in a union. The rule was supposed to go into effect last year, […]
    • A Day in the Life of a Day Laborer
      Come sunrise, the men fill the street corner, among them Luis, quietly sitting by himself, nurturing hopes for work today. There was no work yesterday, nothing the day before and nothing for weeks. Still, the 50-year-old Guatemalan, who didn’t want his last name used, waits in the growing heat, saying he has no other choice. […]
    • Environmental groups sue EPA for failing to protect farmworkers from pesticide exposure
      The delay also prevents the agency from setting an age requirement prohibiting young farmworkers from applying such pesticides. The lawsuit argues that the Trump administration’s decision to postpone the effective date for implementation of the Certification of Pesticide Applicators (CPA) rule could lead to adverse harmful health issues for farmworkers and other people. That revised […]
