May Day

On and around May Day, I tend to think a lot about how people were murdered fighting for the 8-hour work day and other workers' rights that most of us take for granted these days. And so I re-read articles like the ones linked below and re-educate (empower) myself so that I can shove this info down the throats of present day slave masters and bosses.

On May 1, 1886, more than 300,000 workers in 13,000 businesses across the United States walked off their jobs in the first May Day celebration in history. In Chicago, the epicenter for the 8-hour day agitators, 40,000 went out on strike with the anarchists in the forefront of the public’s eye.
