Dem Pete Buttigieg Reveals New Pro-Workers Plan


A few days ahead of the next Democratic debate, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg revealed a plan that backs American workers and increases minimum wages. According to Reuters, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana's plan is called “A New Rising Tide: Empowering Workers in a Changing Economy.” His proposal not only comes with a $15 an hour minimum wage guarantee, it also calls for bargaining rights for gig economy and fast-food workers, along with subcontractors. Buttigieg, 37, said that if he becomes president, he would also close the gender pay gap, stomp out workplace harassment and discrimination against women, and enforce sick leave and paid family leave. Although various parts of Pete's plan have also been proposed by rival candidates, Reuters reports that his popularity is on the rise. "He has been rising in the polls in recent weeks and raised $24.8 million between April and June this year, more than any other of his White House rivals."

  • Hillary Clinton Reveals Student Debt Plan

    On Tuesday, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton put forward a set of proposals that would treat entrepreneurs and startup workers more favorably than other student debtors. In a move aimed at “breaking down barriers and leveling the playing field for entrepreneurs and innovators who are launching their own startups,” Clinton proposed allowing startup founders to defer student debt payment for up to three years. The deferrals would also be available to a new company’s first 10 to 20 employees. The former of secretary of state has proposed several ways to lower college debt for American students, but creating a program specifically targeted at benefitting tech workers carries political risks. Fairly or unfairly, the industry has become associated with the upper-middle class and white men, which is not the most sympathetic recipients of government aid programs.
