Millions of workers lose track of 401(k)s when they leave jobs, costing Americans billions of dollars in retirement savings. I just reintroduced my bipartisan bill to create a national online “lost and found” to help workers find their old accounts. https://www.thinkadvisor.com/2020/07/08/warren-revives-lost-and-found-retirement-accounts-bill/

Congratulations, LTJG Swegle! You make the  @U.S. Navy and our country stronger.

BZ to Lt. j.g. Madeline Swegle on completing the Tactical Air (Strike) aviator syllabus. Swegle is the @USNavy’s first known Black female TACAIR pilot and will receive her Wings of Gold later this month. HOOYAH! @FlyNavy @NASKPAO #ForgedByTheSea #CNATRA #CNATRAgrads

Donald Trump has abandoned the rule of law and made a mockery of our democracy. He truly is the most corrupt president in history. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-says-hes-looking-at-pardoning-roger-stone-ahead-of-pri...

Trump's new policy to force out international students at US colleges & universities is cruel, unconscionable, and only risks the health of students, faculty, and staff. Today, I joined House and Senate colleagues in calling for the immediate withdraw of this xenophobic guidance. 4

12 of the 15 largest COVID-19 clusters in the US are in jails & prisons. I want  @American Correctional Association to explain how they are ensuring the correctional facilities they audit are protecting incarcerated people, staff, their families, & the general public from COVID-19. https://www.wbur.org/news/2020/07/09/warren-prison-coronavirus-markey-weymouth-compressor-kennedy-ca...

The Trump Admin's threat to deport international students if their universities move to online learning has no public health justification. It's just cruel. I joined  @Elizabeth Warren,  @Ed Markey,  @Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and others in urging ICE & DHS to withdraw it. https://nadler.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=394350

@ICE's plan to threaten international students at our colleges & universities with deportation is xenophobic & risks the health of students, faculty & staff. Yesterday  @Elizabeth Warren & I led nearly 100 lawmakers in demanding they reverse this guidance now. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/99-members-congress-demand-withdrawal-restrictions-internationa...

I'm glad the Massachusetts legislature is considering steps to address predatory debt collection and its disproportionate impact on people of color. I have a plan with  @Sherrod Brown to provide broad consumer debt relief. https://medium.com/@SenWarren/congress-must-provide-immediate-relief-for-consumers-heres-how-2aeb996...

Thank you  @Jamie Eldridge,  @Tram T. Nguyen for your leadership on Debt Collection Fairness Act H4694/S2734. Even prior to pandemic, 20% in MA had a debt in collections, 39% in communities of color.  #MALeg please pass DCFA to protect more hard-earned wages from debt collectors!  #mapoli

ICE’s new guidance would force many international students to make an impossible decision: expose yourself to COVID-19 or risk deportation. This has nothing to do with public health.  @Elizabeth Warren,  @Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, and I are demanding the Trump admin immediately withdraw this guidance.

We just delivered *1.2 MILLION* petition signatures to @SenWarren. Thank you to all students, #studentloan borrowers, parents, and allies who made the petition to #CancelStudentDebt in response to the #COVID19 crisis our largest action ever!

Threatening to deport international students & using them as pawns to coerce colleges to reopen this fall is cruel, senseless, & xenophobic. Nearly 100 Senate & House members joined me in urging  @ICE &  @Homeland Security to withdraw this dangerous proposal. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/99-members-congress-demand-withdrawal-restrictions-internationa...

We're proud to have endorsed the Assisted Living Facility Coronavirus Reporting Act. We must bring greater transparency and accountability to how facilities are responding to the pandemic so that we can better protect vulnerable populations, including  #LGBTQ seniors.

If giant corporations truly care about sustainability & combating the  #ClimateCrisis, rather than just greenwashing their brands, they should stop funneling money to the right-wing, anti-climate  @U.S. Chamber to do their dirty work.  #ChangeTheChamber

Quick question for  @Coca-Cola  @PepsiCo, why do you continue to support  @U.S. Chamber, a trade association named as one of the two worst climate obstructors in America? Since you claim to care about the environment,  #ChangetheChamber or quit.  #LobbyForClimate

The Supreme Court reaffirmed today what everyone but Donald Trump already knew: nobody is above the law – not even the President of the United States. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/supreme-court-trump-tax-returns-financial-records...

Giant meatpacking companies have exploited the COVID-19 pandemic and endangered the lives of their workers – especially workers of color.  @Sen. Cory Booker and I are investigating how these meatpackers are protecting their workers.

Puerto Rico was already crushed by a debt crisis from Wall Street vulture funds before recent hurricanes & earthquakes. Now COVID-19 has brought the island’s economy to its knees. I told  @Vice President Mike Pence Pence in April: the Trump admin must not fail Puerto Rico again. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/08/us/coronavirus-puerto-rico-economy-unemployment.html

Big Ag corporations have squeezed out small family farms, crushed competition, & exploited workers while regulators looked the other way. I’m glad to fight alongside  @Sen. Cory Booker on a bill to phase out giant factory farms. https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2020/7/8/21311327/farmers-factory-farms-cafos-animal-rights-booke...

Investors know the  #ClimateCrisis threatens our communities & economic stability. Today I told  @WSJ Editorial Page: it's wrong for  @Secretary Scalia to make it harder for retirement funds to invest with ESG factors in mind to protect against climate change risks. https://www.wsj.com/articles/eugene-scalia-off-the-mark-on-esg-investing-11594151143

No one should look to Donald Trump or Betsy DeVos for public health advice – especially not the  @CDC. Schools cannot safely reopen for students and teachers this fall if the  @Senate Republicans keeps blocking the money schools and states need. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-administration-officials-downplay-guidance-from-health...

For months & months, our doctors, nurses, cities, & states have begged for PPE. How many more of these stories need to pop up for Congress to pass my bill with  @Jan Schakowsky to publicly manufacture PPE & other medical supplies to stop these shortages? https://apnews.com/481d933b0caa6f5fc61f466c86d4777b

We can, and must, stop mass evictions. Congress must pass my universal eviction moratorium bill to guarantee families won't lose their homes, and pass  @Sherrod Brown's emergency rental assistance bill, which would help them make their housing payments. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/07/06/eviction-moratoriums-starwood/

The Supreme Court’s ruling to let employers deny birth control coverage is an attack on basic health care. It’s also an attack on economic freedom.  #HandsOffMyBC https://www.glamour.com/story/elizabeth-warren-attacks-on-birth-control-access-are-attacks-on-womens...

Hey  @US Labor Department, glad you’re encouraging workers to file COVID-19 complaints. Now try: ✅ Actually investigating those complaints ✅ Issuing citations when employers break the law ✅ Issuing an emergency temporary standard so workers have enforceable protections You know, your job.

@US Labor Department launched public service announcements and billboards to help  #KeepWorkersSafe during the coronavirus pandemic: https://www.dol.gov/newsroom/releases/osha/osha20200707-0

Massachusetts faces 2 outbreaks this summer: the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, & the mosquito-borne EEE that killed 15 people in 2019. I’ve urged  @CDC to work with state & local govts to address the EEE threat & will stay on them to hold them accountable. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/07/07/metro/baker-vows-state-will-battle-coronavirus-eee-this-summer/

Tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs during this pandemic, small businesses are struggling, & Trump’s political appointees at the  @consumerfinance.gov just finished gutting the rules that protect Americans from predatory payday lenders. This is appalling. https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/498649-consumer-bureau-revokes-payday-lending-restrictions

When our economy crashed in 2008, Latinos were some of the hardest hit. If the government doesn't act now, COVID-19 will have a similarly catastrophic effect on the Latino community.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not over and grocery store workers are still putting their lives on the line to keep Americans fed. I’m joining  @UFCW and  @Ed Markey in urging  @Stop & Shop and other grocery chains to extend premium pay for their essential workers. https://www.masslive.com/coronavirus/2020/07/massachusetts-sen-ed-markey-union-workers-decry-stop-sh...
