Sunset Park march honors workers injured or killed on the job

BROOKLYN -

Workers and their families marched in Sunset Park Sunday in honor of workers who have been injured or who have died on the job.

"Not one more death" was the theme of the march as families demanded that employers do more to improve job safety. Marchers say they're uniting to hold employers responsible for the deaths and injuries of their workers.

It comes after three New York City construction workers were killed on the job within a week. Participants said they're fighting to make sure employers recognize the hazards they face in the workplace.

The Workers Justice Project organized the march.
