Nothing to see here…just @housedemocrats de facto speaker, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14), celebrating communists.

 

Leaving no room for doubt. Not my grandpa’s Democrat party.

 

I'm going live in 30 minutes with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) for our joint town hall, where we'll discuss why Democrats are working hard to pass the Build Back Better Act! Please join us on Spaces at the link below.

4.3 million workers quit their jobs. We need to quit paying folks not to work.

 

1) Pandemic unemployment insurance programs ended six weeks ago
2) Study after study says the notion UI kept people from working is wrong
3) Ending benefits early had no measurable effect in Tennessee
4) In general you can't qualify for unemployment benefits by quitting your job

 

If you would like to understand JOLTS data better may I suggest that you follow @nick_bunker.

 

One important point here though, is that Tennessee already treats workers who lose their jobs absolutely terribly, and they recently passed legislation to make their unemployment system the very worst in the nation. tennessean.com → Tennessee lawmakers cap unemployment benefits at as low as 12 weeks, lowest nationwide

Cruelty does not create jobs.

 

I just introduced legislation with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA-34) Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA-52) Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO-1) Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ-11) to put federal standards in place to prevent this intentional cruelty to workers who lose their jobs by creating minimum standards for UI across the country.
