may day

May 1st, or May Day, is officially recognized the world over as a day to honor those who have lost their lives and freedom in the fight for fair labor standards. The undersigned believe that the federal government is committing a profound injustice upon the legacy of left-wing activists throughout this nation's history, without whom we would not have established such cherished traditions as the 8-hour work day and the work weekend. We ask that this injustice begin to be rectified with the symbolic act of moving Labor Day from September to it's rightful place of May 1st. You can sign the petition here
