About May Day

In October 1884, a convention held by the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions (today’s AFL) unanimously set May 1, 1886, as the date by which the eight-hour workday would become standard. They sang their songs and made it happen:

Eight hours we’d have for working;
eight hours we’d have for play;
Eight hours we’d have for sleeping
in free Amerikay.

Amerikay still ain’t free for many.
