UFW co-founder Dolores Huerta and other Hispanic labor leaders are urging the community to vote 'no' on Proposition 32.
During a rally at the liberty bell in downtown Bakersfield on Tuesday, organizers said Prop. 32 is s a threat to education, health care, and jobs in Latino communities.
"We know that Prop. 32 is the worst on the ballot because it takes away the voice of the working people to be able to elect political candidates. So, we are going to fight for working people," said Huerta.
The 'Yes on Prop. 32' campaign released the following statement: "Prop. 32 goes as far as constitutionally possible to reduce the control special interests have over Sacramento by cutting the money tie between unions and corporations and the career politicians they buy off. It also stops unions and all employers from deducting money directly from workers' paychecks for politics."
