LA City Unions Vote on the Mayor's Labor Deal

Hosted by

LA Mayor Villaraigosa has been telling the anti-labor Governor of Wisconsin that "collective bargaining works." He gave 19,000 city workers a choice between a four percent pay cut to finance health benefits when they retire as opposed to seven weeks of furloughs that would cost them even more. Today, the vote was announced, and more than 6,000 of the 19,000 said, "no deal."
