May Day: International Workers Day

On May 1, 1886, over 340,000 workers in Chicago went out on strike to fight for an 8-hour workday. Four years later May Day demonstrations spread to thirteen countries. And since we celebrate May 1 as International Workers Day.

Almost 130 years later and we are still defending the eight-hour day, as hard-won workers’ rights are under attack.
