Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, March 17, 1966:  Nearly 100 striking Mexican and Filipino farm workers begin a march from Delano to Sacramento, California.  By April 11, when they reached the steps of the state capitol, 10,000 supporters had joined them.  A few months later, the two organizations representing the workers – the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee and the National Farm Workers Association – joined to form a single union, out of which the United Farm Workers was born.
