Antonio Villaraigosa on Jobs

 

 


Union organizer but disagrees with teachers unions

A former union organizer who went on to become speaker of the state Assembly and a mayor, Villaraigosa has long criticized the state's lack of education spending. However, over decades of working on education policy, at times bitterly at odds with teachers unions, he said, "We can't be afraid of innovation. We can't be saying 'no' to technology. We can't keep on making excuses for the lack of success."
