    Watsonville, California is part of the Salinas Valley, America’s salad bowl, and some of the most fertile land in this country. Watsonville served as home to canneries that produced most of the frozen food products sold in the United States. In 1985, nearly half the town’s 4,000 cannery workers went on strike. The strike was remarkable for a number of reasons. The workers were mostly women of Mexican heritage, many single mothers.
