Cesar Chavez grew up as a migrant farm worker. His family moved from farm to farm, looking for work. They worked long hours, lived in small, dirty shacks or tents, and were barely paid enough to survive. Chavez hated this life and felt the treatment was unfair. So, in the 1960s and 70s, he helped form a Union and led strikes and marches that forced the landowners to increase wages and improve working conditions. Explore his career, and discover how he inspired others to make a difference.
