Mayoral Candidates Tug-of-War over Labor

Hosted by

The race for Mayor of Los Angeles has become a stage for the politics of unionized public employees: the building trades unions, the hotel workers, and the Brotherhood of Electrical Workers at the Department of Water and Power. Eric Garcetti is said to be the candidate they feel closer to—so why are they supporting Wendy Gueuel. Jim Newton is editor at large and columnist for the LA Times.
