May Day 2022 

May 2022

May Day, also called Workers’ Day or International Workers’ Day, day commemorating the historic struggles and gains made by workers and the labor movement, observed in many countries on May 1. In 1889 an international federation of socialist groups and trade unions designated May 1 as a day in support of workers, in commemoration of the Haymarket Riot in Chicago (1886). Five years later, U.S. Pres. Grover Cleveland, uneasy with the socialist origins of Workers’ Day, signed legislation to make Labor Day—already held in some states on the first Monday of September—the official U.S. holiday in honor of workers.

We honor all workers and also name the the pinking and browning of labor as one of the faces of oppression. Who does the work? Men? Women? Black men? Black women? Immigrants? And at the intersection of these identities lies more oppression. To be a Black immigrant woman is a different experience than being a white immigrant woman doing labor, at the intersection of race, gender and immigration status. Click the link to read more.
