Elizabeth Warren released her very progressive labor platform.

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren just released her labor platform for her presidential campaign. It’s an eye-popping 14 pages long.

Warren makes a long list of promises to close every loophole and fix every broken policy that has kept working families from getting ahead in the post-recession economy. Oh, and she wants to give workers new rights too, such as the right for gig workers to unionize.

“We cannot have a truly democratic society with so little power in the hands of working people,” she writes in her plan. “We cannot have sustained and inclusive economic growth without a stronger labor movement.”

The timing is key. Warren is releasing her proposal the day before a big presidential forum hosted by the Service Employees International Union. SEIU represents about 2 million janitors, home care workers, security guards, and childcare workers — and candidates have been jockeying for the union’s prized endorsement."
