Labor Chair Roger Hernández Statement on President Obama’s State of the Union Address
SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Roger Hernandez released the following statement on the President’s State of the Union Address:
“I welcome President Obama’s enthusiasm and energy in creating new jobs in our nation. Jobs that will provide new opportunities for tomorrows generations but most importantly: to keep California moving forward.
“I applaud hs efforts in bringing the new revolution of manufacturing jobs in this country, which will provide a prosperous economy and endless opportunities for many of our residents here in this state. Further, raising the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour will instill trust and confidence in the eyes of millions of hard-working families. It is also imperative we recognize the importance of addressing comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, the expansion of our workforce, as well as workers protections so that our economy can prosper and employ individuals who will be contributing to our state’s General Fund.
“As chair of the Committee of Labor and Employment, I look forward in working with my colleagues in the Legislature to ensure the President’s priorities have the support to put Californians back to work.”
Hernández proudly serves the cities of Azusa, Baldwin Park, Bradbury, City of Industry, Covina, El Monte, Glendora, Irwindale, Monrovia, West Covina and the unincorporated communities of: Bassett, Charter Oak, East Arcadia, Ramona, Royal Oaks and Valinda.
