May Day and the Worker's Struggle

May 1, 2013, May Day

It's May 1st, a day that, globally, is both a holiday celebrating the worker, and a day of protest, fighting for the rights of the worker. In Turkey, Bangladesh, and Greece, along with countless other locales, citizens are in the streets, angry with where austerity measures have brought them. In solidarity, we are sharing a few posters from over the years calling for action on this day of the worker.

    Well, if the damn workers in Pennsylvania could pass their drug tests, maybe there wouldn't be such a struggle. ;)
