May 1, International Workers' Day, is a celebration of the labor movement and is recognized throughout the world. It commemorates the historic struggle of working people for justice on the job. May Day began as a remembrance of the 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicagowhen labor organizers were falsely accused of conspiracy and martyred by the state in the struggle for the eight-hour day.
In 1884, the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions passed a resolutionstating that eight hours would constitute a legal day's work from and after May 1, 1886.
With workers being forced to work 12 and 14 hours a day,rank-and-file support for the eight-hour movement grew. By April 1886, 250,000 workers were involved in the May Day movement.
On May 3, 1886, there was a lockoutat McCormick Harvester Works in Chicago: 1,500 employees were protesting the lockout when scabsarrived and a skirmish started between scabs andworkers. About 200police arrived and shot at the protesters, leaving four workers dead and many wounded.
In its attempts to erase the history and the significance of May Day, the U.S. government declared May 1 to be Law Day, and gave us a Labor Day in September, a holiday devoid of any historical significance. The anarchist Emma Goldman, a young immigrant at the time, pointed to theHaymarket affair as her political birth. Labor organizer Lucy Parsons called uponthe poor to direct their anger toward those responsible - the rich. We can recognize and commemorate May Day, not only for its historical significance, but as a time to organize around issues of vital importance to working people today.
