International Workers’ Day

Tomorrow is International Workers’ Day. I will be at work, my federal job, at which I am prohibited from making partisan political remarks.

I, personally, do not believe that supporting workers’ rights ought to be a partisan issue. But it is.

So I am posting this a day early.

America Needs a $15/hour Minimum Wage

Workers need the Affordable Care Act

Workers need a functional OSHA.

Workers need a real EPA.

I understand that there are a host of marches, protests, rallies, and actions available across the country tomorrow. Go ye forth, you workers of the world.

Arise, ye prisoners of starvation!
Fight for your own emancipation;
Arise, ye slaves of every nation.
In One Union grand.
Our little ones for bread are crying
And millions are from hunger dying;
The end the means is justifying,
‘Tis the final stand.
