I think jobs american jobs plan put engineers and construction workers work building more energy efficient buildings and homes there simply no reason why the blades for wind turbines can't be building pittsburghers beijing.

I made it clear you do without increasing the deficit. Let's start with what. I will not to impose any tax increase on people making less than four hundred thousand dollars. But it's time for corporate america and the wealthiest one percent of americans have just began to pay their fair share. Mr share but wall street country.

Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 08
"Now to god. The i know that you are extremely enthusiastic about Terrence marshall going to the panthers. Twenty seven th pick of the second round just a few picks after escorts from lsu tears marshall to the panthers. What are your thoughts on this cal. I'll pick it a fantastic lang spot. you know. I think i was super high on marshall. Probably highest of just about anybody in the industry All all college season. And all you know predrag and my my enthusiasm is not where one bit. I love the landing spot where some people might be turned off on it You know I know that he is not maybe going to be immediately. Be the number. One with robby anderson and with dj more there. But i think he's going to have a clear role from day one because if you look at his body type and how profiles ios not just a big bodied receiver he also is a a burner to i mean he is true burner and You know high jump. High catch radius any any provides the wide receivers did not do as your which was give a teddy bridgewater. Now is going to be darnold. But they didn't have anybody to score in the red zone. You know everything. They they scored was from like you know deeper out or the the running backs the mike davis or you know. But they really didn't have anybody in the red zone that they could produce. So i think marshall steps in right away and could be. I bet he has a real legitimate chance at leading all rookies in in receiving touchdowns ex year. So you know it's somebody that i like. As far as a talent. I think he can easier to age. Well in that offense because He is going back with his former college coach. Now the head coach of the of the panthers. So i think that this guy drafted him whereas he might have fallen a little bit in. Nfl draft because there was a little bit uncertainty right before the draft about some of his medical history. I don't think coach takes them at high if he has any type about about the about his foot injury so i think that this is going to be the guy that's going to be all help you. Now you're gonna have some flashes. He's going to be probably inconsistent. Probably a lot like a like. I kind of value him a lot. Like the where i had claypool asher whereas i kind of knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for targets but i knew that there was gonna be a lot of upset especially if somebody gets hurt And i just think that there's gonna be a lotta touchdown and he's a big guy when people start really understanding how much of a freak athlete is. Don't be surprised if this guy is being compared as maybe even number one wide receiver in this class next year. That's that's how upside. i see you know. I do think chases a better prospect but you know they were on the same team and You know even on the team with jefferson and chase He marshall was extremely valuable piece of their natural shape team. I mean he. I think he had like fourteen touchdowns or something you know. And he had costa twenty yard per catch average on the team. I mean he he really is a tremendous player and then when those two guys left last year you know he played over about a. I don't know about six or seven seven games. you opted out. And he averaged one hundred and fifteen dollars. You're talking about more leading devante smith. It was really. I believe tears marshall who bleeding the country in yards per game you know before he opted out and he also was averaging close to two touchdowns a game you know and this same competition is all those. Stc guy so. I just liked body. I can't i hate to sound like a broken record. But i really do like big receivers. It's not the smaller wide. Receivers can't thrive in that bayer wide receivers don't bust. I just think that when you historically look at all the body types of players that are generally over six foot in there like over two hundred pounds to twenty six. I'd say two to twenty is about the average. You know we get the top hand wide receiver fantasy for fancy standpoint every year. That's probably about the average. So i like my guys. That profile big catch raises. So i just feel like they're more consistent with a when when you get that's capable of being a possession receiver getting first downs and touchdowns. I i like their consistency versus having a field stretcher. We might put up forty points in a game lake. You kyle i am. I am feeling good about carrots. Marshall and about what he's gonna do in his nfl career. The only hold back that. I have with taras marshall and again this could be viewed as a positive based on what i'm going to say in a second is so terrorist marshall hops into offense with dj more lobbying said in christian. Mccaffrey already there. So you're already looking at the possibility of being the fourth target there in carolina which i deal and add that to the fact that sam darnold who i think everyone considers at this point to be in the bottom. Half of the starting quarterbacks is throwing the ball to terrence. Marshall this is this is clearly not ideal so short term. There are some concerns. I do think like you that he's going to be great in the red zone. Short term era. You're gotta be thinking while sam. Donna already has connected to robinson clearly. The carolina organization views. Dj moore's or number receiver cj. Metcalf a christian mccaffrey a year a year ago. He broke the record for the most receptions for running back in a single season ever. She has to view him almost as a receiver. At this point with the matt of receptions which is insane that he's getting one hundred receptions i think it was a year or two ago so that that's not ideal but dynasty football dicey football so not necessarily great redraft person. In my opinion but dynasty football is about the long game and the long game. I see in the long game i see turns marshall absolutely thriving because we don't know a five we anderson's gonna be in carolina long-term. We don't know what the scenario is going to be with. Sam darnold or with christian mccaffrey. Dj more but we know the is one of the best receivers in this class in. He is talented enough will were at some point career. He will get an opportunity probably sooner rather than later if not this year to really showcase what he can do and he has the talent to be a number one receiver. I love his size. I loved as a big bodied receiver. That's a great fan a red zone. There are a lot of good things about terrence marshall and so what i was saying earlier is the fact that not going to be good in the short term is almost a positive here for you as a dynasty are because now we're seeing him fall to the third fourth fifth round pick of the second round which is lower than it should be gone if anything. This guy should be going at the back half of the first half so now because the term concern that comes with marshall. Now you're gonna be able to go up there and gets terrorist marshall and you're not gonna have to reach from either he's probably just gonna fall right in your laps and you're gonna walk is one of the biggest winners in your dynasty graphs. Because here's a guy that has a potential to be a top five receiver in this

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

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. That was the full tally. there could still be. There is likely to be an attraction to the election and further litigation with the over the matter but the votes as they were counted. 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
Amazon is on edge over Alabama union vote
"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

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
