Wiggins earns 100-percent score for votes on worker issues

SACRAMENTO – The California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, says State Sen. Patricia Wiggins (D-Santa Rosa) earned a perfect score for her votes on worker-related issues in 2007.

Wiggins was one of only six senators (out of 40) to vote with labor 100 percent of the time last year, according to the federation’s recently-released 2007 legislative scorecard.

The California Labor Federation is comprised of more than 1,200 local unions representing 2.1 million men and women.

The federation assessed legislators’ votes on 35 bills, on subjects ranging from health care, disability payments and lift policies for nurses to family leave and tribal gaming compacts.

Twenty-three of the bills were approved by both houses of the Legislature and sent to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who signed three into law and vetoed the other 20.

“In a year which featured little progress for California’s working families, I felt it was important to not only stand for positive change, but also against efforts to roll back previous gains such as daily overtime pay or lunch breaks for workers,” Wiggins said.

Wiggins, who represents the state’s large 2nd Senate District, is chair of the Senate Committee on Public Employment & Retirement.

The 2nd Senate District is made up of portions or all of six Northern California counties – Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma.
