As the spectre of unemployment stalks the land, around comes May Day–a day set aside for the working class–those who build and built this nation, brick by brick.
Not just a day of idle salute, but a day to build more! A day to build social power. A day to strengthen our forces. A day of workers unity. Also a day to unite with the unemployed, to bring them in.
In the wake of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), one of the most brutal attacks on workers in the late 20th century, we have seen the dwindling of the working class, an attack on wages, an all-out assault on pensions (brought to you by thieving politicians!).
Grand theft writ large!
It’s time for workers and trade unions to join hands with all others in their class–to build, once again, social power; to build a better tomorrow!
