At Turning the Tide, we are celebrating May 1, International Workers’ Day all month long with specials on book about labour history and the current struggles of workers for better working conditions and workplace democracy. We recommend checking out this article from ROAR Magazine about the history of May Day which is also a chapter in the newly arrived book by Peter Linebaugh entitled “The Incomplete, True, and Wonderful History of May Day.”
