    California Republican gubernatorial candidate and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman speaks to the Greater San Jose Hispanic Chamber of Commerce March 18, 2010 in San Jose, California. Whitman is currently campaigning ahead of the California Republican primary for governor.

     California labor unions are launching a campaign against former eBaychief executive Meg Whitman, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor.

          California Labor Federation leader Art Pulaski announced Monday that the unions will focus on exposing what he describes as Whitman's Wall Street agenda. The labor federation will be joined by unions representing teachers and nurses, among others.
    Pulaski said labor leaders are starting earlier than ever in the governor's race because Whitman expects to spend $150 million on her campaign.
    The unions say Whitman's corporate philosophy will hurt working families by cutting jobs and lowering taxes on the rich.
    Whitman's campaign did not have an immediate response.
