“It’s one thing for you to talk about the dignity of work, but to be willing to lose your voice to sound like me while doing it, that shows real commitment @CoryBooker,” Brown tweeted.

“Fighting for the dignity of work is how we should govern and it’s how we win in 2020,” he added.


Booker, who has announced his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, spoke during a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa, about the need to appreciate all professions.

“I want to challenge everybody in this room to understand that there is dignity in all work and career professions,” Booker said, calling for the implementation of apprenticeship programs that would provide more pathways to viable careers.

Booker’s pitch closely aligned with the title of Brown’s previously announced “Dignity of Work” tour across the country. Brown campaigned last year on the concept of the “dignity of work” during his reelection bid.

While Booker has thrown his hat into the 2020 Democratic field, Brown has yet to definitively say whether he will run. The Ohio senator has said he believes he could defeat President Trump in states like Ohio and New York, and has said he will make a decision soon on whether to launch a bid.
