Elizabeth Warren
U.S. Senator

Elizabeth Warren is serving her second term as Senator from Massachusetts. Previously, she proposed and helped establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under President Obama, and she was a law professor at Harvard University.

Unions and Workers

Warren's plan for working people would allow workers to join together industry-wide to negotiate wages and benefits, allow state and local governments to find new ways to give workers power, and put our taxpayer dollars to work to support more good union jobs. She would also put unions at the center of all big policy programs in her child care and climate response proposals.

She supports raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and introduced a universal child care bill that includes living wages, is designed to make it easier for child care workers to organize and join unions, and allows for a process to negotiate wages, benefits, hours, and working conditions across programs. Supports legislation like Worker’s Freedom to Negotiate Act that would make it easier for working people to form unions.

Attended the National Forum on Wages and Working People on April 27.

Joined protesting airport workers in Boston in January.

Healthcare

Supports universal health coverage and has co-sponsored Medicare for All, which would create a single-payer health care system.

Immigration

Supports comprehensive immigration reform that protects our borders, creates a permanent solution that provides a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, including DREAMers, and people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and protects families. She has called for an end to private immigration prisons and for investment in troubled countries to make it more feasible for people to stay at home.

Climate Change

Has said she will sign an executive order on her first day in office to place a “total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases including drilling offshore and on public lands.” Supports the Green New Deal.
