Steven Greenhouse, a labor pundit and pro-union author, has “graded” the Democratic candidates labor platforms. If you’re interested in a pro-union perspective of these platforms, dig into the details in this article. Here are the overall grades Greenhouse assigned:

  • Bernie Sanders: A
  • Elizabeth Warren: A
  • Pete Buttigieg: B+
  • Joe Biden: B
  • Cory Booker: B
  • Julián Castro: B
  • Kamala Harris: B
  • Beto O’Rourke: B
  • Amy Klobuchar: B-
  • Andrew Yang: C+

Elizabeth Warren released her 14-point labor plan just prior to her scheduled participation in a Service Employees International Union forum with other 2020 presidential candidates. The plan outlined five goals:

  • Extending labor rights to all workers;
  • Strengthening organizing, collective bargaining, and the right to strike;
  • Raising wages and protection pensions;
  • Increasing worker choice and control;
  • Expanding worker protections, combating discrimination, and improving enforcement.
