Progressive priorities for the Biden administration. Making the case for immigration reform and raising the minimum wage. Plus Bill Press with Representative Tim Ryan.

David Cooper on what a $15 minimum wage would really mean for America’s workers. Philip E. Wolgin on building an immigration system that lives up to American values. Plus Bill Press with Congressman Tim Ryan on why Biden needs to go big with a stimulus relief package.

David Cooper

Progressive Democrats have made raising the minimum wage a priority for the new administration. And for good reason. David Cooper says a $15 minimum wage would lift pay for tens of millions of workers and help reverse decades of growing pay inequality.

Philip E. Wolgin

One of the first actions of the Biden administration was to put a pause on deportation for some undocumented immigrants. Philip E. Wolgin says it’s only the first step toward a fair, humane, and workable immigration policy that must move forward.

Tim Ryan

Bill Press with Representative Tim Ryan on why President Biden needs to hold the line on his $1.9 trillion Covid relief package, and what needs to happen after that. If you'd like to hear the entire episode, visit BillPressPods.com.
