Dozens of marchers gathered this morning in downtown Bakersfield for a Labor Day march. Hundreds with horns, noise makers and signs met at the Liberty Bell near Truxtun Ave. and Chester Ave. around 10:30 a.m. There were speeches, chants and cheers as the group of activists, union members and community leaders gathered around. After several people spoke the more than 100 people lined up in the middle of the roadway and marched down to the County Administration Building. The goal of today was to fight for fair wages and the right to unionize.
