Song of the Stubborn One Thousand: The Watsonville Canning Strike, 1985-87
by Peter Shapiro Author
The Watsonville Canning strike was a dramatic show of the power by women workers whose struggle became a rallying point for the Chicano movement. In the course of the strike, a virtually moribund local union was revitalized, and Watsonville's Latino majority emerged as a major force in local politics.
