Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sr., passes Bernie Sanders for second place behind frontrunner Joe Biden in the 2020 Democrat primary race, according to a new Fox News poll.

Democratic presidential candidate sen. Bernie Sanders says he wants to double the membership in a trade Union and give workers the right to strike, without fear of their jobs filled by replacement workers, ahead of a speech on Wednesday in organised labour.

In the unveiling of its “workplace-democracy-plan” Wednesday morning ahead of his appearance at the Iowa AFL-CIO Convention, the progressive senator from Vermont said, “corporate America and the billionaire class have frozen the Farmer, a 40-year-old war against the trade Union movement in America, has a devastating damage to the middle class in terms of lower wages, fewer social benefits and pensions.”


Sanders, who is making his second straight bid for the democratic presidential nomination, promised“ that the war will come to an end if I’m President. To strengthen if we are to build serious about rebuilding the middle class in America, we have to get back to, and expand, the trade Union movement in America.”

Sanders said, if elected, he would aim to double the membership in a trade Union, by the end of his first term in the White house in January 2025. His plan also calls for the termination of so-called “right to work” laws favored by Republicans and decried by organized labour for the weakening of the trade Union’s ability to negotiate contracts.

Twenty-seven States currently have such laws that prevent the unions from insisting workers be members of the union as a job condition.

Sanders’ proposal would also give the ends of each Union workers the right to strike and the prohibition of the replacement of a strike. And the progressive senator is also obliged to sign an executive order to prevent large corporations from the employment in the union-busting and outsourcing of jobs, while preventing that companies pay workers less than $15 per hour from obtaining Federal contracts.


The Sanders plan would also cease to be the employer of the “ruthless exploitation of the workers by misclassifying them to categorize you as an independent contractor, or refusal of overtime by incorrectly as a” supervisor.'”

The progressive senator has long been a friend of the organized labor movement. He has New Hampshire annual AFL-CIO labor Day Breakfast in the last five years and this year to the presidential election campaign given the title, he is joined striking workers on the picket lines a couple of times.

He also has questions in front of Walmart leadership at their annual General meeting, to increase the company minimum wage. And Sanders has strong Amazon, criticised help to induce, to increase the company, your wages of at least $15 per hour.
