[Los Angeles, CA]—

Hawthorne Mayor Pro Tem Alex Vargas received the overwhelming endorsement from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor. The countyAFL-CIO believes that Alex has the ability to work with labor effectively to create jobs in Hawthorne.

Vargas stated that, as Hawthorne Mayor, it will be his main priority to work in partnership with the residents to find solutions to major city concerns. “One of the biggest issues our residence face is the rate of unemployment. At 16%, we have not only surpassed the state average but also the national average as well. The LA County AFL-CIO knows that I will not only fight to bring jobs to our city but, also give our residents priority in filling those positions.”

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO is the second largest central labor body in the nation.

The LA County AFL-CIO represents over 120 different labor unions and thousands of employees throughout the county.
