MAY DAY/MAY 1, 2015

"Workers are not just the people we see. They go mostly unseen. Behind the scenes and forgotten in foreign places even when close by" ed cooper 5/1/2015


May Day, also known as International Workers' Day or International Labor Day, is a national holiday in almost 80 countries, paying respect to workers all over the world.

The day was chosen to honor the people who died during a demonstration in Chicago in 1886 when workers were striking for an eight-hour working day. A bomb was thrown at the police, leading them to fire on the protesters. Four demonstrators and seven policemen died in the violence.

DO YOU DECIDE THE WORTH OF FOLKS  BY THE  JOBS THEY HAVE OR DON'T HAVE?




I never drove a delivery truck this old, but I worked in a retread shop like the one below.
