Summary
In 1965, as the grapes in California<U+2019>s Coachella Valley were ready to harvest, migrant Filipino American workers<U+2014>who picked and readied the crop for shipping<U+2014>negotiated a wage of $1.40 per hour, the same wage growers had agreed to pay guest workers from Mexico. But when the Filipino grape pickers moved north to Delano, in the Central Valley, and again asked for $1.40 an hour, the growers refused. The ensuing conflict set off one of the longest and most successful strikes in American history. In Strike!, award-winning author Larry Dane Brimner dramatically captures that story. Brimner, a master researcher, fills this riveting account of the strike and its aftermath with the words of migrant workers, union organizers, and grape growers, as well as archival images that capture that first strike in 1965 and the ones that subsequently followed. Includes an author<U+2019>s note, bibliography, and source notes. -- Publisher's description
