Welcome to Uniontown: Episode 08 – Senator Alex Padilla

04.27.21

LA’s very own U.S. Senator (and former intern of the LA Fed) Alex Padilla joins us on this episode of Welcome to Uniontown to talk about his new role in DC as our junior Senator and discuss the PRO Act.

We learn about his background as the proud son of immigrants from Mexico living in the Valley (his father a short-order cook and UNITE HERE Local 11 member, his mother a housekeeper), his degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, his journey in politics, and who at the LA Fed currently works in his old office.

A podcast from the Los Angeles County of Labor, AFL-CIO
Produced by Hugo Romero, Christian Castro, and Scarlett Ying
Sound Editing: Jared Batty (of IATSE Local 33)
Music: The Nightwatchman – Union Town. Special thanks to Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine and proud AFM Local 47 union member) for providing us with the music from his solo project.
