Child-care workers face funding cuts

Assembly Speaker John Perez has a new plan to protect the jobs of 60,000 child care workers, whose jobs are at risk because of the governor’s blue-pencil cuts to the budget. These jobs and the welfare of thousands of families are threatened by the Governor's veto of child care subsidies, and Perez sees “bridge” funding as a way to keep these programs going until funding can be restored by the Legislature. He’s here with the details.

Guest:

John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles), Speaker of the California Assembly

Astrid Campos, Regional Organizer for California Partnership.
