Scott Horsley of member station KPBS reports on a labor day reunion of workers whose services are no longer needed. People who used to work on San Diego's Cannery Row , canning tuna fish, are reminiscing about the hard work and the good pay of the past. Most tuna canneries are now located overseas, where labor costs are cheaper.
