THE GRAPE BOYCOTT By Karna Upadhyay In my opinion, the boycott was very successful. Cesar Chavez was a very good director and his work did a lot of good for boycotts in general. He achieved his goal through non-violent protest and with public support. He also brought disenfranchised groups power through the ability to unionize and helped Hispanic Americans gain political power. The first reason the boycott was successful was because it achieved the goal it set out to achieve. It raised worker wages, which had previously been one of the lowest of people living in the United States. Another goal it achieved was employer contribution toward health care and welfare funds. Before that, the average migrant worker could only expect to live 49 years, compared to 70 for the average citizen, due to hard labor and contact to pesticides. The deals formed also gave workers some power to regulate pesticide use. One of the most important things the boycott accomplished was to give their union power over things like hiring techniques.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
