Anti-Outsourcing Resolution passes California Assembly

From The Sacramento Bee:

On a party-line vote, the Assembly on Thursday affirmed a union-backed resolution urging lawmakers to resist contracting out public services.

The non-binding resolution stipulates that the Assembly “opposes outsourcing of public services and assets.” Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, D-Los Angeles, the measure’s author, said public entities can cloud an otherwise open process when they contract out work, and warned outsourcing can lead to “rubber-stamped” contract awards with no discussion.

“Over the years, outsourcing has left taxpayers without transparency or accountability to where the taxpayer money is being used,” said Gomez.

    “Anti-Outsourcing Resolution passes California Assembly”
    No doubt called the ‘SEIU Public Workers Full Employment Bill’.

    If you are a worthless public union member who can’t compete with private enterprise you go get a union whore like Gomez to exclude the competition. Legislators in the union pocket like Gomez, give Latino legislators a bad name.
