Eric Garcetti on Jobs

 

 


Universal pathway to employment

Garcetti called for stricter gun restrictions. He's pro-choice. He prefers a "universal pathway to employment" over the universal basic income proposal some have offered. As a Mexican-American Jew, he proudly touts his own immigrant ancestry.

While Garcetti is not afraid to talk policy, he posits that's not how elections are won. "We need to speak plain English again," Garcetti said of Democrats. "We can't be the smarty-pants party anymore. I know we have good ideas and once we're in power we should do them, but when we're running elections, people don't want to know your 10-point plan for things. They want to know if you connect with them as a human being."

Garcetti sought to cast the glitzy reputation of LA as not so estranged from the everyday problems of Americans elsewhere. "Yes, it's true, I come from Los Angeles," he said. "But we are people who have dreams and hopes and are just as frustrated as you are about the direction of this country."

Create one online portal for job seekers

Develop a web portal with access to all adult education and job training courses. There are currently a variety of sites--JobsLA.org, adulted-lausd-ca.schoolloop.com, LACCD.edu--that have useful information and services, but we need easy access to the entire system that can walk any potential student or job seeker through all the options and get the best and most comprehensive results. The city's first Chief Technology Officer would oversee integration of these systems.
