Labor Day, Unions and the Rebel Girls

Labor Day isn't about BBQs and parties. It's about union workers who sacrificed, sometimes in the ultimate way, to get better working conditions. The real world Labor Day isn't even in September. It's May 1--May Day. And it's thanks to the Rebel Girls in large part, that we celebrate Labor Day at all. Rebel girls don't drive pink jeeps. They organize! Happy Labor Day from an IWW Rebel Girl
