Historic Cannery RowFilipinos were attracted in large numbers to California after the 1924 Immigration Act excluded Japanese, who had been the major part of the state's agricultural labor force. By 1930, as many as 35,000 Pinoys - young, single, male Filipino laborers - were working in California's fields, hotels, restaurants and private homes. During World War II, a number of Filipinos from the island of Luzon, north of Manila, worked in the canneries and reductions plants.
