098 – A Fake May Day in September

We discuss the cruel timing of the Biden administration and the Democratic controlled Congress ripping away vital unemployment assistance and pandemic related programs from 7.5 million people on Labor Day, a day that was once a celebration of labor unionization and now has become another meaningless day to shop till ya drop or get blind drunk like usual. We give a very compact overview of all things labor union related throughout US history, from positive steps forwards to literal massacres on behalf of Moneyed Interests. And we round things out by discussing how Labor Day Is a Scam To Keep You Poor and Miserable Forever, and how May Day, the true international day of labor solidarity, was wrenched away from from American consciousness, despite its origins being from the infamous Haymarket affair/riot in Chicago.
