“Honoring the working men, women, their families and the businesses that believe in strong labor-management partnerships is our top priority,” said Marvin Kropke, Co-Chair of Working Californians. “Following the success of last year’s concert, Working Californians promises to continue its mission to strengthen connections, shared interests and partnerships between California’s large cross-section of working men and women.”

Thousands of dollars were raised to promote WCA’s efforts to strengthen social innovation and entrepreneurship at the grassroots level.
