Figura dominante


Senior Member
Hi there,
I am trying to translate this sentence into English language:
"La figura que predominó de forma aplastante en el mercado laboral masculino de Madrid fue el jornalero".
This is my attempt:
"The predominant figure at Madrid labour market was the day labourer", I do not really know if I should use the word overwhelming, but if so, I don't know how to use it. Could it be: The day labourer was the overwhelming figure within Madrid labour market.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you, I really need help with this sentence:confused:
