To all of you working-class (including white-collar) persons out there who owe your livelihoods to the sacrifices of socialists and anarchists past, this is your day. If you are in the habit of voting for union-busting right-wingers or pro-corporate centrists, then shame on you. You’re working at undoing all that was done for you, and you are desecrating the memory of those who sacrificed so that you can have it good. Turn off Fox News and CNN, and read some history that isn’t approved by the wealthy elite who would just as soon see the vast majority of us (and our school-age children) working in sweat shops and dying before age thirty.

The Brief Origins of May Day.
