NFL Player Lockout Addressed At MLK Breakfast


LOS ANGELES - NFL Players Association leader and former NFL football player Nolan Harrison spoke at LA Labor’s sold out Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast this morning about the potential NFL players’ lockout in 2011.

Harrison also addressed the importance of unity among working families and fans not only to support the players and the preserve the regular football season, but to support stadium employees, support staff and local communities that rely on NFL football to maintain their local economies.

It is estimated that a lockout would impact 150,000 jobs—and cause more than $140 million in lost revenue in each and every NFL city—some $4.5 billion across America.

Los Angeles workers will honor Alvin Turner and Baxter Leach, two rank-and-file Memphis sanitation workers who participated in the historic “I Am A Man” strike where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. California Attorney General Kamala Harris will also provide remarks.
