The billionaire presidential candidate has fully or partially reversed himself on stances he took as recently as 2019.
Dave JamiesonThe amazing thing about these Bloomberg flippity flops is how recent his problematic stances are. This isn't having to account for some weird thing he wrote in 1976 or whatever. It's like he's reversing positions he held during breakfast this morning

Leaked messages show staffers worrying about their safety on Iowa’s icy roads.
Dave JamiesonWow. Report from @kenklippenstein shows Biden campaign urged staffers to drive in dangerous weather in Iowa, where the campaign has had at least five crashes: "quite frankly I don't want to hear any complaints"

As the autoworkers' strike grinds through its third week, workers say they'll stay on the picket lines for as long as it takes.
Dave JamiesonI hung out with GM strikers in Pennsylvania this week. They are 1) inspired by the public support they've received, 2) starting to feel some financial pain, 3) ready to stay out much longer if they have to: "We are going to win this." to
A HuffPost investigation shows many low-wage workers are confined to filthy bathrooms, can't get breaks and even lose their jobs trying to pump.
Dave JamiesonSo what's it like for low-wage women who need to pump breastmilk at work? We obtained nearly 400 federal investigations involving the "nursing mothers" law. The findings in these cases are sad and disturbing. I'm going to walk through them here. 1/X
General Motors now says company-funded benefits will continue uninterrupted during the work stoppage of nearly 50,000 workers.
Dave JamiesonSo GM blinked. It seems the company didn't enjoy being a Medicare for All talking point, and will fund striking workers' health care for now, without a break in coverage. But GM won't say whether that will continue if the strike drags on.
