California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris has been dropping major hints that she’s running for president from appearing on talk shows like Ellen Degeneres to increasing funding for HBCUs from $244.7 million to $279.6 million. Her latest move is a huge sign that she is aiming to be Madam President.

Harris is refusing to speak at the graduation University of California at Berkeley due to a labor strike. SFGate.com reports, “Thousands of service workers with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME, walked off the job at all 10 UC campuses Monday in protest of what they said was the University of California’s practice of hiring contractors and displacing longtime employees.” The labor dispute is about wages and job security. The Sacramento Bee reports “AFSCME 3299 negotiators have sought wage increases of 6 percent, a freeze on health-care premiums and elimination of contracting out jobs for which its members are trained.” As of now, the university has rejected their demands.

On  Monday, Harris tweeted her support, writing, “If we are going to live up to our ideals as a nation, it’s critical we focus on economic equality and economic justice. One key is making sure everyone has access to a good job, with fair wages, and safe working conditions.” See the tweet below:

Who will the students get instead? Campus chancellor Carol Christ. Students have expressed their disappointment, Charlotte Cordova, 22, said, “I was just looking forward to hearing from a California senator, a woman of color senator, and I’ve heard potentially that she’s running for president. I was curious to see what she’s had to say — and so were my friends, Democrats and Republicans.”

While we can imagine this is disappointing, this is a clear sign that Kamala Harris will be running.
