Grapes symbolize the fruit of hard labor. In 1965, when low pay and poor conditions made it impossible for grape workers to enjoy their labor or its fruits, they walked out. First to strike were Filipino Americans around Delano, CA. They asked Cesar Chavez and mostly Latino workers to join them. The workers unified and finally won contracts with the growers 5 years later. Grapes, on tables or in wine, could finally “make glad the hearts” of all.
