LOS ANGELES (September 16, 2015) — Los Angeles is more than just flowers and sunshine; this city is full of hard workers who work smart. As one of the Freightliner Trucks Hardest Working Cities, Los Angeles is the leader in manufacturing employment and among the top contributors to the U.S. gross domestic product.

Last week, we kicked off the celebration by visiting jobsites around Los Angeles to surprise some of the city's hardest workers with food, gifts and our sincere appreciation.

Our visits included:

After our surprise visits, we headed to South Bay Truck Center, where we hosted the Hardest Working Cities award presentation featuring special guest speaker Aaron Gross, international trade specialist for the Port of L.A. and Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti, who accepted the award on behalf of the city. The event featured food trucks, YETI cooler giveaways and hosted more than 100 guests.

Special thanks to Gary Toebben from the L.A. Area Chamber and Bill Allen from the L.A. Economic Development Corporation for letting us interview you to share your thoughts on why hard work matters in your city.

We were honored to celebrate Los Angeles and, more importantly, honor the men and women who do the jobs that help make cities like this thrive.

Congratulations Los Angeles. Take a bow, then get back to work.
