Senator Cory Booker Stands Up for Workers | Fourth Democratic Debate


Thousands of GM workers here in Ohio and across the country are on strike. All of you on the stage have voiced support for these workers. Senator Booker, one of the latest impasse is in negotiations involves bringing jobs back from Mexico. As President, how would you convince GM to return production to the United States? Well, first of all, the one point I wanted to make about the UBI conversation, and I hope that my friend Andrew Yang will come out for this, doing more for workers than UVI would actually be just raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, It would put more money in people’s pockets, than giving them $1,000 a month. We have to start putting the dignity back in work. And number one, you start having trade deals, not like this thing that the President’s trying to push through Congress right now that gives pharmaceutical companies, other corporations benefits and doesn’t put workers at the center of every trade deal. We must make sure we are not giving corporate tax incentive for people to move jobs out of our country, but start to put the worker at the center of that and make sure that they have the resources to succeed. But it’s more than that. I stood with these workers, because we’re seeing this trend all over our country. I stood with unions, because right now unions in America are under attack. As union membership has gone down, we have seen a stratification of wealth and income in this country. So the other thing that I’ll do as President of the United States is begin to fight again, to see union strength in this country spread. To make sure we have sectoral bargaining, so that unions from the auto workers all the way to fast food workers, can ensure that we improve worker’s conditions and make sure that every American has a living wage in this country.

  1. Cory Booker fails to understand how 15$ minimum wage will further decrease the amount of new businesses by creating a huge barrier to entry to even start a business.
    Is it safe to say Cory has never started a business before, cause he sure sounds like it?

  2. HOW IS 15 MIN WAGE GOING TO BE MORE THAN 1K EVERY MONTH OF YOUR GOD DAMN LIFE!? RIDICULOUS. Booker needs to learn how to do some MATH. #Yang2020

  3. Cory Booker should play “the joker’ in the next sequel, he has this constant fake smile and his mouth exaggerated with every syllable that it’s makes it hard to take anything he says seriously! I mean this guy has a mouth so wide he could eat a whole banana sideways! Very hard to watch this guy for longer than 2 minutes without flipping the channel!

  4. Cory Booker is a douche… He ran Newark into the ground to make a buck… He will NEVER be President… NEVER EVER!

  5. This asshole wants to start censoring religions that consider homosexuality wrong. FIRST AMENDMENT YOU FASCIST A$$HOLE. America won't tolerate that and you will likely be hit by a copper and lead meteorite. You better protect the US Constitution OR WE WILL.
    THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY A$$HOLE.

  6. He wants to ban so-called "ASSAULT RIFLES" which are used in less than 3% of all gun homicides. But he doesn't care about handguns which are used in over 90% of all gun homicides.
    He is a Fascist trying to steal the only real power that US citizens have to keep the government in line.
    If you support this a$$hole you are an ignorant stupid fool.

  7. Booker, do you know that you keep talking and talking but don't really answer the real questions! Another thing, you mentioned about a $15/hr minimum wage to counter Yang's UBI. Do the math moron, do you think Americans would turn down additional $12k increase in their personal cash flow vs. a $5/hr increase in their paycheck?

  8. $15 is huge cost for the small business. Is this channel generating enough revenue to hire new editor with above 15 dollars?

  9. Raising minimum wage does nothing for the middle class who already make $15 or more an hour and actually hurts the people who only make minimum wage due to companies reducing hours, laying off workers and cutting benefits. UBI helps everyone from the lower class to the middle class who the majority struggle getting by.

  10. A $15/he min wage is better for workers than a UBI!?!??!? You obviously know nothing about tax law or the data, watch my video addressing this to learn more.

  11. Man these politicians are just dumb or a scam. He said instead of UBI just do $15 hour wages. Ok mr smarty pants….. that would mean if minimum wage was $10 and plus $5 would be an extra 2,400 hours a year, 46 hours more a week. So Americans would work 85 hours a week just to make $12k more a year. Not to mention the taxes. UBI 12k a year, free and clear.
