“Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – Democratic Party Weekly Address”

“The President and Congressional Republicans need to stop stigmatizing mental illness, need to stop taking orders from the NRA, need to break their addiction to gun lobby money and need start acting to keep people safe.

People don’t have to keep dying, we have the power, we have the power in Congress right now to stop it. This shouldn’t be a Republican issue, it shouldn’t be a Democratic issue – this is about keeping Americans safe in their homes, in their workplaces, in their churches, in their schools.”

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

(Ahead of Labor Day, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) delivered the Weekly Democratic Address. Brown called for policies to raise wages and benefits for American workers, make it easier for workers to save for retirement, give workers more power in their workplaces, and encourage companies to invest in workers. Brown highlighted that while most of the richest Americans and companies that ship jobs overseas were able to gain tax breaks through the GOP’s tax bill last year, American workers largely are still seeing stagnant wages and are looking for promised relief for the middle class.)

American workers are our greatest asset; they are the engine behind our nation’s success for generations – whether they punch a time sheet or make a salary or earn tips. Whether they work behind a desk or a restaurant counter, on a factory floor, on a construction site, or in a hospital.

Yet for too many of these workers, their hard work doesn’t pay off. Corporate profits are up. Executive salaries have gone up dramatically. Stock prices have gone up. Workers are ever more productive. But wages have barely budged. In fact, under this administration, wages have actually declined. […]

To the millions of American workers working too many hours for too little pay, let me tell you, you aren’t invisible to me, you are not invisible to Democratic officeholders in this country.

We see you. We hear you. We fight for you.

We fight for paid family leave. We fight for sick leave. We fight for overtime pay. We fight to give workers a say on the job. We fight to save America’s pensions. We fight for those small businesses that are helping in our pension system. We want to make it easy for everyone to save for retirement.

We work to encourage companies to invest in their greatest asset – you, the American worker. That’s what Democrats fight for on Labor Day. That’s what we’ll fight for tomorrow. That’s what we’ll fight for the rest of the year and next year too, every day throughout the year. Happy Labor Day to America’s great workforce – the American worker. Thank you so much.”

The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio.

“Hard work isn’t paying off the way it used to. . . . People earn less, people can’t save for retirement, and people feel less stable – all while working harder and producing more than ever before. . . . Democrats are fighting to make your hard work pay off once again. We have proposals to raise wages and benefits, to make it easier for workers to save for retirement, to give workers more power in the workplace, and to encourage companies to invest in their greatest asset – you, the American worker.” -Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
