Early life and Backround
His parents were immigrants who moved to California, they worked in fields which is where Cesar encountered insufficient pay, awful treatment, and the horrible conditions of the work place. Cesar started to work as a migrant worker, because he didn't want his mom to work in the fields and so therefore he couldn't go to high school. At the time school didn't seem important, he was often bullied and mistreated for not speaking English and was hit with a ruler if he spoke Spanish.
