Labor’s New Voice
Weingarten has been at the heart of a labor upsurge since the 1990s. As communication director for the L.A. County employees’ union, he chronicled the fight to save General Hospital. He was press deputy for United Teachers Los Angeles for six years, and has given voice to nurses, janitors, bus drivers and entertainment industry professionals.
“Steve brings the drive of a muckraking journalist to all he does, whether digging into an investigative story or advocating better coverage of issues important to our well being as a people and a nation.”
Felix Gutierrez, Annenberg School for Communication
