California Teamsters want for farm workers what all Teamsters want for America: Good jobs. Which is why Teamsters from California's Central Valley joined farm workers in Stockton on their 167-mile march to the state capitol. They want Gov. Jerry Brown to sign the Fair Treatment for Farm Workers bill.
In 1966, Cesar Chavez led striking farm workers on a 340-mile pilgrimage to Sacramento. They'd had enough of poverty wages, long hours, a lack of fresh drinking water, pesticides, heat. More important, they wanted to show that their strike was about justice and dignity. They did.
