Happy May Day!

I think that even though we have done everything possible to pretend like May 1st isn't an important marker (like changing it to labor day, a long weekend in early September to devoid of pro-worker sentiment) we need it.

We need to remember that people like us have changed things in the past and can change things again. People were brave enough to risk their lives for things like an 8 hour workday.
