MLK Day 2018
Los Angeles County Fire Fighters Local 1014 would like to take a moment to remember the late Martin Luther King Jr.
Local 1014 is one of the major sponsors of the Martin Luther King Jr. Parade in Los Angeles. We, along with our Labor Partners in the LA Federation of Labor and a host of top elected officials will take time to reflect on not only a civil rights leader but also a Labor Leader who helped with so many Labor issues for workers including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FSLA) of which firefighters are familiar with every two weeks! Many Labor victories that affect us today were fought for long ago with great leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.
Have a great finish on the holiday weekend and remember the man we honor and his work.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We need to constantly reflect on the privilege of being blessed to live in
