One sunny morning last March, Eddie Medina and Ines Gaxiola boarded the M. S. Oriental Patriot docked at the Port of Long Beach. A heavy dew had fallen, and the two longshoremen walked slowly to avoid slipping as they traversed the tops of cargo containers stacked 32 feet high on the ship's deck. Working on opposite sides of the containers, backs turned to one another, the men used long poles to reach down and unfasten the boxes so a crane could later lift them ashore.
