Since the inception of International Workers Day, the United States has used the fear of socialism to keep workers from unionizing and organizing for fair working conditions. That decades old fear is slowly dying and it is incumbent upon all of us to shed this divide and conquer tactic and step up to our humanity.
The first Labor Day took place in New York City on September 5th, 1882 as a demonstration for worker’s rights. Twelve years later, it was signed into a law as a national holiday to celebrate and honor the working class. World-wide people celebrate May 1 as International Workers Day. Everyday is Labor Day!
