Wendy Greuel grants raises to DWP. DWP's union bankrolls Greuel campaigns. DWP raises your utility rates to pay for it all (in the form of de facto taxes).
The DWP's union boss expects more raises for DWP after negotiations next year (LATimes 2/16/13). Possible rate increases are in DWP's financial plan for 2014, 2015 and 2016 (LATimes 9/25/12). Does anyone know why DWP is exempt from pension reform City Council passed last year? (LATimes 1/29/13)
