May Day dates back to the 1880’s when unions led the charge for better workplace conditions and eight-hour workdays. Since then, May Day has been a day of action to speak out for economic equality and social justice for working families and immigrant communities. As we work to raise the minimum wage and ensure paid family leave, it’s clear we need a system that works for everyone. That is why each and every day we must protect and fight for the American workers who are the backbone of our nation.
