About this item

"Peter Shapiro combines wonderful story telling with a sharp historian's analysis to explain an important but little-known corner of the US labor movement. Song of the Stubborn One Thousand is a story of hope and inspiration. It's a must read for anyone interested in the power of working people and minorities." ?Freelance journalist Reese Erlich, who covered the strike for the Christian Science Monitor

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.

Peter Shapiro is a retired letter carrier and longtime labor journalist. His union paper was repeatedly honored during his tenure as editor, and he has published in Labor Notes, Labor Studies Journal, Unity, and The Nation.
