The Workers Defense Project, a workers’ rights group based in Austin, held its Day of the Fallen march on Feb. 27 to commemorate Texas construction workers who have been killed on the job. Hundreds marched from the Federal Building at 801 San Jacinto to the Capitol, demanding legislation to protect workers from abuse, exploitation and unsafe working conditions—which the Observer previously detailed in “Dying to Build.”
