“I come from a union family,” said Larry Barragan. “This is a lifestyle for me.”
And on Monday, more than 6,000 people marched, cheered, chanted and lined the streets of the blue-collar community of Wilmington to show solidarity with that sentiment on Labor Day, at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Harbor Labor Coalition Solidarity Parade and Picnic Rally.
“It’s what I’m about, said Barragan, the event’s chairman. “I was born and raised in San Pedro. I do this out of dedication for the union. It is a labor of love.”
