At a candidates forum in Culver City yesterday, both Phil Angelides and Steve Westley said they would sign a bill for equal pay for part timers in response to my question. When Pacifica posts the audio file, I will post it here.
Westley said he has taught college before and accurately described our life as "freeway flyers." Without hesitation, Angelides said he would support it itoo.
If someone has a chance to see them in other forums and ask the same question, they should, and make it clear it's something we'll hold them to.
Then we should work to put a bill in front of whichever ends up in office.
