Rep. Pramila Jayapal on What Progressives Think of Joe Biden Now
"Congresswoman giant. Paul thank you very much. For coming to the podcast. It's great to be with you. Jonathan okay so. President biden just gave a joint session speech to the american people where he outlined a huge agenda. Very forward-looking agenda of for the american people in for his presidency. You're the chair of the progressive the congressional progressive caucus all during the campaign. All the talk was about. How progressives didn't want joe biden and wants to biden and got elected How progressives were going to be giving joe biden the blues and they're going to be fighting with him since you are the chair of the progressive caucus. What grade would you give him. Well you know what i have said. Is that progressives have helped define this moment. The campaign last year was an example of that the push over the last ten years for a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage by progressive says actually made mainstream today so jonathan i always say progressives are the first to the best and most just idea and then we have to push like hell to get everybody else there. But joe biden has risen to the moment And i think you know. He came into office recognizing the crises of racial inequality of the pandemic of unemployment. So many things that americans never thought we would see food lines around the block as he talked about in his speech and he has come out with a very bold agenda of very progressive agenda. He has taken the virus under control. in a way that you know we only had dreamed about last year but now two hundred million shots in arms in just ninety nine days we feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel so so far joe biden has been doing a very good job on on the present in the presidency and now we just have to make sure that that continues that he leans into it just as much with the american jobs and families plan which by the way we want to be one package that he leans into even things that are going to be difficult which he has done with tax reform. But even bigger than that. Jonathan i think what progressives are most excited about is that finally there is a frame for the conversation that has been the progressive blends for a very long time and that is that government has the ability to really give opportunity and correct many of the wrongs that have been there before. And it is. The problem is not going to big. It is going to small. And i've heard those words come out of joe biden's rouse
Biden to sign $15 minimum wage for federal contract workers
"President but it is preparing to sign an executive order to increase the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour for federal contractors I'm Julie Walker administration officials say the order will provide a pay bump to hundreds of thousands of those workers they say the workers will become more productive as a result so the increase should not be costly to taxpayers the increase to be approved under today's executive order could be dramatic for workers who are in the current minimum of ten dollars and ninety five cents an hour those workers would receive up thirty seven percent pay hike though the increase would be rolled out gradually under the terms of the order
Cheers to the Side Hustle
"Has opened up the world. The people i mean anything that you do in the privacy of your home and love to do you can now make a profit out. Absolutely i think i just kind of takes them work and you can do local festivals and i mean even online shops not even going through oetzi but taking it to that next level. I have a client. That actually has done that. It started out. She was a teacher and she started making these cool plaques fish's name of her company she does the festivals and different things and sales on oetzi all of a sudden. She's not teaching anymore and now her husband has quit his day job. Wow that's a big chunk. Yeah it was kinda hard form in that. They kind of fell into it in a grew which happens a lot of towns. We had to kind of backtrack to get hold of the business part of it. And that's where you and i come in with people. Sometimes they've already gone away and they need to take a step back just to get their accounting and get. Yeah and that's not the fun stuff. I mean when you're first getting started. You're so excited. You're so motivated to get you know. This new project started and to really launch it. But i think before you need to do that. You kind of need to take the time and get your ducks in a row. You said that today we were talking about businesses and different things and you said excitement hides the effort take so it was brilliant. Obviously kind of launching a new product if we're talking about hobbies specifically rather than a service. It's easy you're so excited. You're not thinking about those small details all the legal paperwork. The business plan. How are you going to grow you know. Do you even know the us goods sold. Like if i'm selling a blanket for fifteen dollars but it can cost me. Thirteen to make you know and not just the product itself. But my time. I mean you've got to take all of those factors into the equation
What Is Manufactured Spending?
"What is manufactured spending breakdown. I like this website. Doctor of credit breaks it down. They give an excellent summary to me and what they say is manufacturer. Spending is the process of purchasing cash equivalence with the rewards earning credit card where the rewards earned are greater than the fees incurred. It can be used for meeting. Minimum spending requirements are just racking up frequent flyer meyer miles with your favourite airline or hotel partner so i think breaking down a little bit more. What does does that mean like getting a gift card and then doing something with that gift cards. So it's like if you get if you have a credit card and you aren't frequent flyer miles or your rewards on every cash on every purchase which you can do is you could buy gift card and then you could sell that gift card and use the proceeds to pay off the credit card. So it's like the credit card bill. Let's say you buy hundred dollar gift card and then you pay off that hundred dollar gift card and maybe sell in for ninety dollars but you're awards was like ten percent so you can maybe like fifteen dollars back or something so you're in fifteen dollars and technically you spent nothing interest on the credit card. So that's the manufacturers spending idea that's the idea of using gaining more rewards and it's paying off your credit card using not your own money but the credit cards money absolutely so via travelers dot com guys if you're new woken free. All of our links are available on the website at Dot com so yeah via travelers dot com also says that essentially by artificially spending by either purchasing virtual gift cards products tools or services at the lowest cost possible. It is a you can think of this manufacturer. Spending spending arbitrage is how they describe it so they went into saying if you if you could earn say five percent cashback spending money at a store but it only costs you less than one percent to transact your inherently making money on that purchase which is interesting and and all these different ways because you can do it through gift cards be you can also do like you said through the frequent travelers thing travel rewards different things. You not you technically get it for free if you're able to sell whatever you purchase a credit card
Amazon Warehouse Workers Reject Union Efforts
"On friday. Amazon warehouse workers in bessemer alabama voted to reject the effort to unionize. So what does this mean for amazon. The fight over labor conditions at the retail giant chang in this sure daily charge here with us to break it down his amazon expert. Laura tullow welcome lart. Thank you for having me. So breakout what happened on friday on friday. The allergy finished tallying votes union election at the best in warehouse and the with the really decisive win for amazon so to speak in that the workers rejected the union. So that was the.

Friday were for rejecting the union by margin of more than two. Wow yeah that's that's a big deal. Considering that this effort was i mean this effort made headlines around the country. Even guard support senator bernie sanders and present. Joe biden is a very high profile fights and he says why it was so roundly defeated. It's really hard to say. you know. There were several factors. Of course there is the fact that this warehouse provides jobs in an area where the minimum wage is a belief seven twenty five an hour and they pay more than fifteen dollars an hour for starting wage. A lotta times in union elections in place. Do worry that their employers will want to leave the area or lay people off or more employees as many people if they're having to deal with the union Do the cost and that sort of thing. People get their jobs and those are really valuable jobs in that region. They're paying thousands of them. If the really big deal in that community to half those jobs

"I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge joining us to run through this. Big labor battle is laura. Atallah our amazon expert. Welcome lor so. Can you give me a quick quick recap of what this vote. There are five thousand. Eight hundred warehouse workers in bessemer alabama voting on whether to or me union. It would be the first. Us amazon union. And it's also one of the largest if not dealer described to vote on forming a union in the us for amazon. And so there's a lot at stake here. It could kind of not like a beachhead free unions if it inspires other warehouse workers in other locations to organize. And what are we expecting the results so the results could happen at any time. The national labor relations board is counting up to balance and they could be this week or next antezana pretty vocal there. Obviously against this. And they've made the argument that they already pay their poise fifteen dollars an hour which is above the national minimum. What exactly are workers asking for. What's really prompting this. Push to unionize down in bessemer right. So the workers invest myr say that they would really like more control over their breaks and rest time and that comes from the fact that are ten hour shifts and they are extremely physical so people who are picking up packages from tote santa putting them on conveyor belts to be put in boxes are walking upwards of ten miles a day in their shifts bending down at santa gap again bet. Certain say there's other jobs where there's a lot of movement all day and amazon does offer breaks course and allows people to go to the bathroom whenever they need to. Workers say that the requirements to fill werner's are so onerous that they don't really get to take extra break on pop up those like hour rest period total of by ryan the the debris down thirty minutes. Relaunch to fifteen minute breaks right
What Is Needed To Bring About Progressive Policy Changes?
"Might have criticisms over how bernie handled the fifteen dollars. An hour minimum wage battle in the relief bill. But putting that aside you know the other thing that he's focused on that. I think is really important. Is getting workers organized including traveling to bessemer alabama to help galvanize the efforts to unionize among warehouse. Workers there once. You have an organized workforce like that that's when the public pressure becomes real. That is what this country experienced in the lead. Up to the new deal. You think the roosevelt just like decided to pass the new deal out of the kindness of his own heart. No there were general strikes happening. Unfortunately a lot of those strikes ended up getting incredibly violent and brutal. And bloody but the victories that this country enjoyed as a result of that new deal happened on the backs of organized labor. And so that's the other part of this as well you need. You need lawmakers who are willing to You know implement out of the box strategies. And i guess in this case. It isn't really out of the box. But a strategy you need actual campaigning and policy work political work done on the ground by these lawmakers to push for policies that they're trying to pass and then you need organized labor to not only apply pressure temporarily but apply persistent pressure until we get what we
Why Organizing Employee At Alabama Amazon Center Wants A Union
"Ballots are due today. For thousands of employees at an amazon warehouse in bessemer alabama. We're voting on whether to unionize. If the organizers are successful it would be the first union for amazon employees in the us. There is a lot at stake. Cure for the workers for amazon and for the rest of the tech industry. So for more on this we turn to our reporter sebastian herrera. He covers amazon and ecommerce for us. Hey bashing thanks for joining. Thanks for having me. Okay so bring us up to speed on this unionization effort. Who's been leading the charge. And what are they pushing for. Well there's a set of pro union workers inside of this facility in bessemer who have been leading the charge alongside of the union which is the retail wholesale and department store union. And they've they've basically been trying since the start of the election obviously to rally workers for pro union vote. They're trying to change. What a lot of employees bring up at work at these facilities which is breaks. Pay other benefits and what they focus on. Two is the rate at which they have to work because at these facilities employees are expected to fulfill items that go into packages hundreds of items per hour. And it's pretty taxing on these employees. Because i do it for ten hours a day you know they pretty much in the same spot isolated for amount of of the day and they are penalized. If they don't fulfil items at a certain rate you could easily be fired for for not making rate so they point to that as something they feel can change. They point to the fact that even though amazon offers fifteen dollars starting pay that it is really not enough to make a living wage. Some of these employees they go to second or even third job to support their families. So i feel like with as of successful advocacy as a company is amazon has been they could be receiving more and so they're ultimately fighting for these various

The Black Shark 4 Smartphone Rises From The Deep
"All right so this article comes to us from the android police. Apparently gaming phones are getting more and more popular. I wonder why could it be. People want more power in a smaller screen. The post who. I don't know if powerful computer the complete of video games honor or like a consul. It's it seems to me like it's smartphones. Time to rise and while zombie is keeping up the pace with black shark series. The latest iteration the black sharp for an for pro have popped up in a chinese you can pre-order one. Today with the phones set release to china on thursday. The twenty fifth and international release date has not been set yet. But what what are you looking at stat. Wise here while the black shark. Four pro uses a snapdragon eight processor. Qualcomm's biggest and bad available. It's paired to either eight gigs or twelve. Gigs of ultraviolet fast. Lpddr five ram with two hundred fifty six gigs of storage both models. But those aren't exactly hard to find these days. The more obvious give way that this is giving phone are the dedicated mechanical shoulder buttons on the side flight. The locks away to them pop up like two shoulder buttons on a black shark three they can be bound to touch areas on screen for integration with really more or less any game but if you want the mechanical shoulder buttons you now have that option. The four pro is six point. Six seven inch a. m. o. l. e. the ten eighty p screen with a maximum refresh rate of one. Hundred forty four hertz. Beating most phones it also has to zones of pressure sensitivity as a nema pressure applied. Not just touch sensitive allowing for further integration into games that can support it. It's battery as a forty five hundred m h typical for phone this size but supports fast charging at a completely bonkers. Honored twani watts with a charger included in the box. Family says it can charge ninety percent of the battery in a little more than half an hour. It looks like the video that goes along with two well in terms of cameras on the pro. They have a sixty four megapixel main shooter. Eight megapixel ultra wide five megapixel macro with a twenty megapixel centered. Front camera terms of style to flat. Black version actually looks fairly down. Nice to notice the side buttons. Led triangle logo on the back stays on lit. You'd have a hard time telling its gaming phone. Of course that goes out the window to get the so empty version of its auto translated by the way unsure of the official name. It's layered semi transparent glass shifts around as you look at it and much more flashy but not unappealing way. The phones a chunky and nine point nine meters. But that's enough to include a headphone jack in sight mounted fingerprint reader. The dual sim. Radio works with five g for absolutely intense sessions. You can't quick bond the sold separately cooling module at cedar black shark four pro a starts at four thousand. I'm trying to remember the exact It can't be the chinese currency that they have. But if you're talking about us dollars be black shark for pro is at six hundred fifteen dollars and six hundred ninety dollars respectively as the non. It's it's kind of slightly scaled down version Looks pretty interesting In terms of the i it drops one of the cameras. It keeps the shoulder buttons most of the rest of the hardware and it's slightly cheaper. Probably not a five hundred dollar range for a gaming smartphone. That's unheard of clean. We're sitting here looking at foods. The latest and greatest thousand plus in in north china pop out gaming smartphones that are packed full of hardware intact for like seven hundred between five and seven hundred eighty s manageable. It off but yeah. If you're looking for gaming phone well you might just have to wait for this to be released internationally. But if you're in china Details in terms of prices and such and selections and preorders are available in a show notes for today's episode. So looks pretty cool all right. Moving on to an article begat from techcrunch facebook's clubhouse rival looks a lot like clubhouse right now in and because facebook is a clubhouse rival reported on net like all the way back in february in new york times. Didn't a bunch of other people did but what that product look like or how it will work have been questioned that have remained unanswered however new screenshots of a facebook audio product still under development shows what appears to be a live audio broadcasts experience. It's more of an extension of facebook's existing messenger rooms rather than a standalone app experience. Facebook confirmed with techcrunch. The images are indeed examples of the companies exploratory efforts because they don't represent alive product at this time but the gamut we all know the company said also that detailing what product look like based on these images would be inaccurate ob tech crush said screw. Were pushing him anyway. But keep in mind. It is in development features. That are very different in anything and everything could still change drastically between now and then but images at least help. Face their demonstrate. How facebook is thinking about live audio. Where such a social experience. Good fit within facebook's existing and that's worth considering considering that i don't think facebook wants to make another app i think they just want everybody to be on one app and use that so we do have some pictures that go along with it. Looks like they have like button. It says choose the room type where it's like live audio broadcasts in audio only room to listeners audio where you can start a private audio room with friends. A video button reconstructive private video room with friends in an you can also add people in but it looks very much like Like clubhouse that. I'm still trying to get used to somebody interfaces of the room so it's it's kind of interesting Speak are shown to tap the room. What a represented with a larger circular profile picks room listeners appear below is also a followed by speaker section leads the audience section again much like clubhouse but obviously subject to change the way it's being developed that would allow for rooms that anyone on facebook join Rooms could be accessible from facebook itself. Meaning you would not have to switch to messenger to join the room. When not expanded to full screen room with displays title number speakers in total listeners. He can get an idea of the rooms popularity. So Yeah lebron even looking at it tested it out. Don't secret facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg is both on audio. Of course in fact he's already appeared on clubhouse. A couple of times recently spoke about the product. Chris social audio in clubhouse room hosted last week by former techcrunch editor josh casino investor at signal fire
Where's the value in NFTs
"You first saw the acronym ft show up in your tweets you got as far as not at four. And then you realize you're quickly going down the wrong path and trying to decipher it. Nfc stanford non fungible tokens now from there. If you're like me you thought it had to do with mushrooms. Maybe mario brothers. I don't know so then you read a paragraph of an article got bored or confused and moved on with the knowledge that all of your assumptions were wrong. But then you didn't actually replace it with any real knowledge okay. And so that was fine until you started seeing f. T. everywhere and you realize that maybe you should learn what it means and also you have a podcast taping coming up so here we are. And it's not that ludicrous bro. Stay with me all right. Mitchell mitchell clarke wrote a delightful article on the verge explaining t so i'm largely relying on that also wired new york times and a few other places. Let's go all right. Non fungible tokens are essentially a way that you can claim ownership of a digital thing. So think music art tweets yes. These are all reproducible. But so is a postcard of the mona lisa. So non fungible tokens exists on a blockchain at this point. Mostly a theory but others are getting on board and there are online marketplaces like open sea bull and fifty gateway where you can buy and sell the official ownership of the digital thing again. We're talking music video. Art animated gifts for artists provides a new way to sell your work and you can also set it up. So that you get a little kickback. Every time the nfc changes hands with a new owner. Lots nice so right now. You're like bro. Why would someone pay millions of dollars for an animated gif when you can just download it for free again. Why would someone bhai a monet painting for millions when you can get it on a mug from the gift shop for fifteen dollars so it all comes down to the basic tautology that some things have value just because someone decides it has value now for some people the value might be bragging rights to that end. You get to buy an nf t fred digital drawing of a cat because you are looking for a new way to show people. You are wealthy for others. Value might be about your phantom or support of an artist or musician. Kings of leon grimes dead mouse and many others have released. And fte's for music and art and for others. The value might be purely speculative. You're buying the nf t for digital drawing up a cat because you think it will rise in value as many other people agree. They want that authentic digital drawing a cat. And you're like seriously digital yes. Ten years ago. A guy named chris torres created the animated. Meam niane cat. You know it as the flying cat with a pop tart for a body and it's leaving a rainbow trail behind as soon as you google. It you're going to be like. Oh cat i totally know what you're talking about. So in february torres created an nf t version and put it up for auction and it sold for nearly six hundred thousand dollars following a last minute bidding frenzy other f- tease out there. William shatner is dental x ray digital baseball cards photos of lindsay lohan. And the first tweet. By jack dorsey just sold for two point. Nine million. don't feel too bad because the proceeds argos support a charity. So there's that and if t. Are definitely booming right now with probably more speculators than collectors and fans driving up prices but experts looking beyond the boom. See a great opportunity for a new way to guarantee authenticity. So for example nike already has a patent to create. Nfc's attached to shoes to guarantee their authenticity. Called crypto. kicks so when you consider that. A pair of air jordan twelve flu games are worth more than one hundred thousand dollars. Yeah i think. I want an fte with that purchase. Please and maybe you're still skeptical like a bunch of people in the comments of the articles. I read but seriously. How is this all that new and different. It's not like people buy sneakers art or baseball cards for the value of the materials themselves. They buy them for the aesthetics. The design the rarity as the new york times quoted. Marc andreessen. ben. Horowitz a two hundred dollar pair of sneakers is like five dollars in plastic. You're buying a feeling and right now the feeling that. Fte's is similar to one a stamp collector or baseball card collector or art collector or fashion. Or even a speculator might feel. It's that feeling that you are special because you own something someone else wants.
Some Capitol Hill Lawmakers Back Amazon Workers' Attempt To Unionize
"Nearly six thousand amazon employees who work at a warehouse in bessemer alabama are voting by mail on whether to unionize. If they do this will be the first union amazon facility in this country. Here's jennifer bates. Who works there. I keep butterflies and butterflies. Normally come to calm me but hey this is my stomach faithful. It seems like it's getting bigger and bigger full of butterflies. Because there's no break in. Think i don't know how kogo nerve wracking. The election ends later. This month and i should mention. That amazon is a financial supporter of npr. But we cover them like any other company. Some lawmakers support the union. Including senator marco marco rubio or republican and of course president biden also michigan congressman andy levin earlier this month. He and a group of democrats traveled to bessemer. Good morning congressman. Good morning noel. How are you good thanks. What did amazon employees. They're tell you about why they want to unionize. Well you know a union election so often are about basic dignity and that was really true here. I was shocked to learn what it's really like in there They work in a facility. That's like fourteen football fields and it can take ten minutes to walk to a break room. They've to half hour breaks in a ten hour shift so they might get effectively ten hours to eat lunch be by the time they walk there and back lot of them. Don't feel like they can go to the bathroom. Except on their break. And they're watched and quantified every second they're monitored visually a listening geo positioning and every second they're not on task is measured and if they have a certain number of minutes off task in a week they could be fired sometimes might not even be a person involved it was really kind of dehumanizing to me. Here's the argument. That amazon makes amazon. Says look our employees. Earn fifteen dollars an hour which is a good wage in a place like bessemer alabama. Some of them have health benefits. 401k's essentially they have got the benefits that a union would get them. They don't need a union. What do you make of that argument. I'd like to tell that argument to any national football league player and the actor and a movie any presenter on major television or radio networks all of whom have a union every single one. The idea that unions are only for people who are the most poorly paid. It's ridiculous the one person who is unionized. That every airline is the pilot so this argument is ridiculous. These workers deserve a seat at the table to discuss a safe workplace. During a pandemic they deserve a seat at the table to have a workplace. That's human and a real person can go to and great make fifteen dollars. An hour amazon should pay them a lot more the owner of the company. The main owner had his wealth increase. Seventy eight billion dollars during a pandemic and they're about pay jeff bezos in their bag bragging about paying people fifteen dollars an hour there. What's wrong with workers having their own organization just that they can have input in their in in their work lives. And that's all these people are seeking is a seat at the table during this trip to alabama that you went on your colleague congressman jamaal. Bowman said this doesn't stop with amazon. He mentioned lift. Uber tesla and walmart as well. What is the ultimate goal here. The goal is for workers to be able to form a union and bargain collectively. If they darn well please. Noel were down to six percent of private sector workers in this country needing union. We're gonna pass the proactive in the congress and the president is going help. Lead into new era when workers can have a say at the table. It's long pastime in this country. Michigan congressman andy levin. Thank you
Fresh off blockbuster acquisition, Microsoft will add 20 Bethesda games to Xbox Game Pass
"Learn more at attleboro dot com slash talking listeners. It's brett molina. And i'm mike schneider and welcome back to talking tech as we look ahead into the video game crystal ball. Many felt that. Sony has the best lineup of exclusive games coming to the playstation five in the months ahead. But it's possible. That picture is changing. Microsoft has officially completed. Its seven point five billion dollar acquisition of cinemax media which is the parent company of bethesda soft works. Anyone who was into playing video games does the name bethesda. It's created such games as the elder scrolls and fallout plus it on several other studios including it software which created doom and wolfenstein. One upcoming game from bethesda studio death loop is in development arcain studios that will actually be a playstation exclusive when it arrives in may but future bethesda studio games will be xbox exclusives. Xbox gamers will still see immediate rewards from this deal. Microsoft is planning to bring additional bethesda games to its xbox game pass subscription service within days said xbox head phil spencer so xbox game pass which has been gaining in popularity will likely get a boost. Out of this I checked it has about eighteen million pain members that they pay ten dollars a month or more for the service. For instance you can also get it for fifteen dollars if you include xbox live which if you play online multiplayer games you need that anyway and the thing with game pass to is. They haven't just been showing off like games. They've also tried to do a lot of microsoft gains day and date so you can actually buy the game or you can try it out on game pass and i wouldn't be surprised if we see that in a similar way with bethesda where we see a lot of their games available maybe day and date on xbox game pass so
Senate Holds Longest Vote in History as Democrats Scramble To Save Relief Bill
"Was quite a bit of drama in the senate yesterday where democrats were sort of scrambling to make sure that they had the votes over unemployment benefits and what happened. I think shows right. The slim majority the democrats hold in the power of certain senators. Yeah i mean. Essentially democrats went to the floor and they didn't have the votes and that really rarely happens. Senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a democrat was an entirely on board with the party's plan for these extended unemployment benefits and he was threatening to vote with republicans on a competing proposal. Dr rail the entire process for about twelve hours yesterday until they finally came up with deal to tweak unemployment benefits to shorten how long they're going to be available for about a month now a lot of republicans just as the benefits were too generous especially with the economy turning around and the mass availability of vaccines expected likely by early summer. The senate did make some significant changes to the version that the house passed. What were those. I think most notably they scrapped the house plan for a fifteen dollar federal minimum wage violated senate budget rules but also it just didn't have enough support among democrats in the senate to pass joe mansion and kirsten cinema arizona. Were both against it. They also tighten the income limits for those fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks and they'll start phasing out for folks making over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. They lowered the income threshold. The house bill was more generous and they also made those extended unemployment benefits less generous. They reduce the benefit from an additional four hundred dollars a week to three hundred dollars a week. And they're going to expire now just after labor day instead of the end of september. Do you want to know what the white house has signed off on all these changes that they don't have a problem with it and again. I think it's always important to remind people that the broader contours of this bill is. It's still two trillion dollars nearly in very popular democratic spending proposals. So it's also one of the largest standalone spending bills in history and i think democrats overall see. This is a pretty big victory. Those changes though do me in the house will have to vote again before this gets sent over to the white house for biden signature. When will that happen. it should happen next week. They wanna get this done and send it to president biden by march fourteenth because that's when current extended unemployment benefits expire. It should be able to pass the house leaders. There have been looped in on all these changes. They've been looped in with communications with the white house but there is some frustration among house democrats especially progressive democrats that the benefits in this bill. Were basically cut down because of other democrats new jersey congresswoman bonnie watson said that she was quote disgusted by some of her senate democratic colleagues. She questioned whether she could support the reworked version of the bill. I think that's important because house. Democrats have essentially no margin for error. They can only lose three votes on any party. Line vote and still have it passed so there could be some more drama next week Again bottom line from the democrats. I've talked to you. No one thinks the party itself is going to derail major-party legislation that the top priority for the president and also remember. This bill is hugely popular with the public in recent polling. It's not bipartisan in congress. But it is to voters. And that's a message. That biden has been pressing
Senate holds longest vote in history
"End the senate they have been trying to pass the covid relief bill earlier in the day you might have seen headlines about the fact that the senate took a vote on senator bernie. Sanders is proposal to raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. Now that failed all republicans voted against it and incredibly democrats voted against it as well news in its own right but after that they started arguing in the senate amongst themselves. They all started arguing with joe mansion about unemployment benefits and the covert relief. Bill and they argued over that for nine hours ultimately landed somewhere which is very very close to where they started but they had nine hours of fighting about it turns out in that time they never technically gal shut the vote on bernie sanders is minimum wage thing which means accidentally we just had the official longest vote in senate history by mistake for nine hours for no reason. Congratulations as for the pint. Final passage of this bill. We'd been expecting it sometime this weekend with this pointless nine hour delay. It's unclear when we're going to see this thing getting past but watch this space.
Senate Ends Hope for Significant Wage Hike
"So we got the senate doing their senate thing today. Right to vote a rama. There's all these amendments and there was standoff happening in something that happened there today. A seven democrats and one independent who caucuses with democrats joined with republicans to shoot down raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour as part of the biden cove. Relief package among those democratic. Novo's joe manchin of west virginia. Chris coons of delaware. The moment that really stood out was when arizona democrat. Kirsten cinema walked up to cast her. Vote miss cinema cinema. No out she represents arizona. Maybe that was a homage to the late. John mccain. Who famously did that to that. Repeal vote but that full thumbs down from arizona helped end hopes for a really big wage hike that the congressional budget office says directly affect seventeen million american workers on a bringing maria. Teresa kumar co founding president and ceo voto latino fetchacure former senior adviser senate democratic leader harry reid and current advisor to bernie sanders. Faz let me start with you. I want people to understand this. Vote before we analyze us. This was a vote that was going to fail either way. It was essentially a symbolic message. Vote because it needed sixty votes filibuster -able so going into this. Everyone knows it's not gonna be talking to pass. No republicans are going to vote for it. So it's a free ride. It's a layup you get up there and say yes. We want to fifteen our minimum wage. So it was very very surprising to me. A lot of people to see democrats eight of them in the caucus vote. No what is your explanation. Of course you've got to go back in history. A little bit where. President obama suggested raising the minimum wage to ten ten. It was hillary clinton during the two thousand sixteen campaign who suggested raising it to twelve. It was bernie sanders. Who's been pushing along with you to raise the wage to fifteen dollars an hour. And as a result of that we have gotten a lot of progress in the democratic caucus and not all the way clearly and painful. Chris you take senator cinema arizona's got a twelve dollar minimum wage. And in fact if you look at raise the wage which gradually raises the minimum wage to fifteen dollars over five years it would be at twelve fifty by year. Three which is where harris zona is so many ways it doesn't really impact arizona and yet you have center for cinema denying many people. Millions of people around the country are arrays of their wages. Maria wha what did you make so. I used to work in congress. A- as a hill staff for a long time ago on preparations and this was fairly unusual. Because what those eight did was say. That they were not going to deliver the biden agenda in the biden administration. Right now is going to figure out how to channel little lbj and demonstrate that there are consequences when there are not voting down for the presence agenda. As you mentioned. chris. This was a layup but i have to say when we when we witnessed this thumbs down by cinema. I think for a lot of folks people felt at at odds because when john mccain did it it was to save healthcare for millions of americans when she when she did today was turned down. This idea that there was going to be some sort of economic closer to economic committee. For millions of americans and fifteen dollars has even fifteen dollars does not keep pace with the with the inflation rate of the nineteen. Seventies the raiders really. I established it was perplexing on many many fronts but this is an opportunity really for joe biden to say. You're going to have to come down to the white house because we're gonna have a talking

"Of a fifteen dollar minimum wage, a green new deal and serious climate policy and criminal Justice reform, and people sort of this Bernie rally, so these are Bernie supporters, but they sort of uniformly felt that Bernie has these strongest approach these issues, but Medicare for all and free college tuition seems to be resonating on a very personal level with a lot of the people that I spoke to and I'll give. An example, I spoke to two twenty year old Brooklyn college students. They're both children of they're both Muslim women children of immigrants come from working class households. They're friends with each other their names are Meyer Ellis gun drawn. He and he'll calm, and my are said, you know. She said, you know, when I was making this is a quote from her when I was making. My college decision to issue was a really big deal. I got other offers, but it didn't really matter because I knew my family couldn't afford it. The gut level reaction to the potential for individual freedom that Bernie Sanders is free tuition proposal actually would make a huge difference in her own life. And then and then Menahem Khan said I come from a low income household and just the other day had to walk out of a dentist office. I have insurance, but I couldn't afford the co pay. So I just left and he's justification for why the first things that they told me when I ask them why they come out to support Bernie Sanders, and they also mentioned that it was really important to them to be hearing from a working class child of immigrants who grew up in Brooklyn himself, and attended Brooklyn college, and that's something that really stood out about the Brooklyn rally as you probably read and all of the coverage Bernie attorney toward the Audubon graphical, which is extraordinarily unusual. For him. But never want abandoned politics or settle for mere pandering. He policised it almost immediately and launched into. I thought a wonderful a portion of the speech where he compared his own working class upbringing to Donald Trump's upper class upbringing. And I think it really resonated with a lot of the people in the crowd across lines of racial difference of gender difference of difference in citizenship status, or or ethnic background. And so on. I was there. And that was I mean, it was hugely affective against Donald Trump. And also, yeah, I got I actually almost teared up when he talked about his background, and those were two things that I also wanted to put on the table one. I'll take them one at a time. Okay. So one look again, they're in in abroad generality like who would not love to see as a African American woman candidate beat Donald Trump, like just destroy embarrassing humiliate him in the literal college in popular vote and people's need and desire to have a different representation. The White House is correct and valid and totally legitimate. I obviously, I don't think it supersedes of vital class in policy differences, which is why support Bernie, and you know, that's just the base of the conversation. And I think we can be respectful, hopefully. In good faith about it on both sides that question, and I'm clear where I stand, and I also, but I don't want to de-legitimize that sentiment either. That being said to see a man whose family was directly close relatives killed in the holocaust whose family fled Europe in that context. The old white man moniker on actually going to say is essentially anti semitic. Disgusting. And I'm not like I don't wanna hear that. So let me put that first one across. Yeah. I'll give you a close. So, you know, not being myself a person of color. I will give you a quote from young woman color that I spoke to at the rally. So I asked this young woman. She's twenty two years old. She lives in Manhattan. Her family comes from Palestine. I asked her if she agreed with liberal talking point that Bernie's unable to represent people's color because he's a white man, and she responded, no, no, no policy over identity. And then she continued people who say he's just an old white man and more of the same or knowing the importance of policies for people of color, the people who will benefit the most from Medicare for all. For example. We'll be working class people of color when he talks about championing unions and worker's rights..

So sometimes in the afternoon, we'll go in and get a simple burger in a large iced tea, and I'm not getting the other day. We it was so short handed. We waited we probably could have gone gotten a girl at the hardware store. So we have to wait line at the hardware store gotten a grill. Gotten charcoal went to the grocery store, and we didn't wait negoti store in line gotten, burgers, we probably could've cooked that back on the the vineyard time. It took them to make a burger Carl's junior. So it's I don't know. It's it's funny that I should be talking to you right now because I heard recently about a program in Mendocino county where they were vetting. You know, if you prisoners who they were gonna let out of jail and pay like eleven dollars a day to to help in the been yurts. Have you heard about anything like that? I haven't heard that. But I think I mean what a great idea. The problem is if you own the vines, and you've got someone that doesn't care about how they're pruning, and that might or might not happen. I can't say it, wouldn't you know, you could. I mean, what forget what percent of California prisons are in there for having outs and a half marijuana, you know, three times and selling to their friends. That's a whole nother story. But yeah. I'm telling you, it's we're going to figure out something and automation as long way away. I certainly can't have fifteen acres vines. You can't buy a robot makes it economical. So right. And we also Mike Baronet I in extreme value have been looking at truckers just thinking, you know. Free shipping is probably going to become the norm across, you know, all online benders, and at you know, at some point. And so we will know what the impact is going to be there. And we we keep seeing one thing after another in these in these truckers where they're just having a lot of trouble finding people, you know. And and we thought they were going to be talking about one thing. But they're talking about the labor shortage is all they can talk about. So so I hear you it makes a lot of sense to me. And when you see things like fifteen dollar minimum wages. Yeah. It's the government does it. But the fact that it winds those things wind up sticking. Makes it more function of the market too. You know? So anyway, you you and Matt have. You've created a new something a new product new way of of thinking and talking about options that you wanna unleash on the world. Have you not? Yeah. So Matt can add a little bit too. But you know at buck when he introduced it. I thought we're gonna be talking more about economics. I this sort of. Selling our products over and over gets a little bit tiresome sometime so out kinda let Matt sort of run with that. I'll be the good guy imac can be the bad guy the bad salesman. But thanks. Essentially. He comes with age and privilege. So what happened was we were? I was really contemplating away for is where Madel roles is because mantle sale. I thought of the idea. It was we hired a new guy on a group of young junior analyst, and I was kinda looking for a way to have sort of more option training, but real life. And somehow I don't know who thought of how exactly came up, but we were like, well, let's take all of the picks that stands berry does. And look at them and ask the question would we do that ourselves? We agree with the argument. So let's say you picked apple or something like that. Then we would create using just riveted. Trade on Dan ferris is apple pick. And this became sort of a lot of fun and a little more work than I think both Matt and Jeff expecting, but it became sort of fun thing and super successful with limited risk because as you know, when you buy an option, you know, up front that you've paid a premium. And so your your fixed loss is known. But then we use selling options around that position either above or below it either with different maturity date so-called calendar spreads and it created this incredible use of time..
