Gov’s speech reinforces his support for working families


Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “State of the State” address on Feb. 12 reflected his commitment to a better California and to the working families who contribute so much to our communities and our economy.

His “California for All” plan proposes programs that mirror Local 1000’s fight for social and economic justice. His speech was in sharp contrast with last week’s “State of the Union” address, where the president described what Newsom called “a vision for America that is fundamentally at odds with California values.”

Newsom’s California Dream includes expanded tax credits for working families, investments in retirement security and stability, improved affordability and accessibility to health care, more affordable housing and $500 million investment to address the homelessness crisis.
