March 31 is César Chávez Day. Chávez is remembered as a champion of migrant workers who harvest the nation’s food. He helped create the United Farmworkers Union; He led boycotts, marches, and protests - fought for fair wages for farmworkers. Today, we aired an episode of BackStory with The American History Guys that’s all about the fair wage. And a note to our listeners, this program was made in 2014, so references go back to the original air date.
