LA Tries an Anti-Wisconsin Approach to Unions

Hosted by

This Friday, some 19,000 Los Angeles workers will vote to accept or reject what Mayor Villaraigosa calls "a watershed moment" in city history. A coalition of six union leaders agreed last week to increase their members' contributions to pension funds and to establish retiree healthcare contributions for the first time. The Mayor said that would save the jobs of 600 workers and spare the entire workforce from furloughs.
