Four Senators, 14 Assemblymembers Garner Perfect Scores in 2011
(Sacramento) — The California Labor Federation announced today that 18 state legislators received 100% scores on the Labor Federation’s 2011 “Force for Progress” scorecard, which examines bills that support workers’ rights and issues, and those that would roll back important protections for California workers.
In the State Assembly, Assemblymembers Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), Jim Beall (D-San Jose), Marty Block (D-San Diego), Bob Blumenfield (D-Van Nuys), Mike Eng (D-Monterey Park), Paul Fong (D-Mountain View), Mary Hayashi (D-Hayward), Roger Hernandez (D-Baldwin Park), Ricardo Lara (D-South Gate), Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia), Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), Sandre Swanson (D-Oakland), Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) and Mariko Yamada (D-Davis) all garnered perfect scores in support of working people.
In the State Senate, Senators Ellen Corbett (D-San Leandro), Mark DeSaulnier (D-Concord), Loni Hancock (D-Oakland) and Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) received 100% voting records on the bills that mattered most to California’s working families.
“We salute the legislators who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the California labor movement’s agenda of creating better jobs, stronger communities and greater opportunity for workers,” said California Labor Federation Executive Secretary-Treasurer Art Pulaski. “The women and men who built this state, and whose work makes it run, deserve no less than the full support that these legislators have demonstrated to restoring our state’s promise and creating an economy that works for all.”
