Senator Elizabeth Warren is introduced for a roundtable discussion in Storm Lake, Iowa. In Iowa, Warren said her childhood in Oklahoma shaped her populist economic views. She was the daughter of a janitor who lost work after a heart attack, forcing her mother to take a minimum wage job. "That minimum wage job saved our house and it saved our family," Warren said. "Today, a minimum wage job in America will not keep a momma and a baby out of poverty. That's why I'm in this fight."
