Celebrate International Workers Day
May Day was founded in the United States as a result of the great struggle and sacrifice of life that resulted from the general strike of 1886 and the movement for the eight hour work day. Globally, on May 1st of each year, workers in massive celebrations all around the world pay tribute to their labors and honor the struggle for better conditions. Workers in the United States have been denied their history and their common bond with workers in other countries. Join us in our commitment to educate and inform our fellow workers and all Americans about the origins of May Day, so that we may reclaim our proud heritage.
