The human cost of Gonzalez’ AB5 is immense!

 Tom Manzo, president and founder of CABIA, released this statement on the ad:

“Assemblywoman Gonzalez is part of the problem in California. Her terrible AB5 law has cost thousands of independent contractors their ‘gigs,’ and it’s only one of many laws that make California inhospitable to business. No wonder Elon Musk and others feel like they’ve been screwed. Gonzalez should get off Twitter and get to work undoing the damage she’s caused.”

Lorena Gonzalez attacks Charter School because teachers do not want her Teachers Union

 Lorena Gonzalez, received donations from General Trade Unions:  $114,300.00 and Public Sector Unions:  $98,900.00, in the 2020 cycle.  She received $9,300 from the California Teachers Association Union and another $9,300 from the American Federation of Teachers Union.   California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez has jumped into the controversy on the side of SDEA union bosses.  In a letter to Gompers Preparatory Academy (a charter school in San Diego) leadership she also attacked the Right to Work Foundation simply for providing legal aid to Gompers Preparatory Academy educators as they seek to exercise their right to hold a decertification election. Lorena Gonzalez is abusing her power on state letterhead being funded by unions.  The Right to Work Foundation  has provided legal aid to thousands upon thousands of teachers, including many charter school teachers.

Lorena Gonzalez expressed her concerns again, as she recently found out that teachers are not happy with the SDEA/CTA and sought assistance from the National Right to Work Foundation to file for a desertification vote.  She further accused the National Right to Work Foundation of  being an organization that "disenfranchised workers."  Lorena..... The teachers and unit members at GPA never had a vote.  For you use Assembly letter head to continually badger our school is unprofessional.  Where is your letter supporting the teachers and unit members that want a vote?  Read how the Union bosses took over a successful charter school, with support from Lorena Gonzalez help (GPAFamily.com)

 Top liberal Union Sycophant Assembly Woman Lorena Gonzalez (Author of AB-5 Anti-UBER/LYFT Bill) Underscores California’s Hostility To Business Interests In California. 


1. Assembly woman Lorena Gonzalez chairs the very powerful Assembly Appropriations Committee commonly known as the “killing fields” of both Democrat (moderates) and Republican bills.


2. She is a former union organizer that is 100% owned by labor.


3. She and her cronies in Sacramento have tried to coerce Elon Musk’s Tesla employees to unionize with the United Auto Workers. Musk repeatedly said “go pound sand” and his employees have never embraced  the effort to unionize because of the great pay and benefits TESLA offers them.


While Ms. Gonzalez was elected by a small number of voters in San Diego, she does NOT speak for the entire state of California that now sees her as a HUGE embarrassment and a symptom of a much bigger problem plaguing California.
