The march is being led by Florentino Bautista whose fiancee died after working in 100-degree heat in a vineyard near Stockton. State authorities suspect 17-year-old Maria Isabel Vasquez Jimenez died because the farm labor contractor the couple worked for denied her proper access to shade and water. The march began in Lodi on Sunday and ends at the state Capitol building on Wednesday.
