Workers in California must turn their attention to defeating California Proposition 32 which will be on the November 2012 ballot. This initiative is an attempt by wealthy and political dominant billionaires to take control of California politics by eliminating the ability of labor organizations to support and elect candidates who believe in workers’ safety and fair wages, and instead, buy politicians who will act solely in the interest of the wealthy.  

Unions continuously work to create a better quality of life, not only for their members, but for all workers.  Educate yourself, and find out how you can help to continue creating a better quality of life for all workers.

Make sure to tune in as we interview Barry Broad.  Barry was born in Los Angeles, California in 1957.  A lawyer by trade, who works as a lobbyist representing organized labor.  He lives in Sacramento.

Also, Ed Rendon, Director of Public Affairs & Education for Teamsters Joint Council 42 will be joining our interview.
