Labor Day Hypocrisy

Stephen Lendman writes for Truthout: "Labor Day has been commemorated on the first Monday in September each year since the first one was celebrated in New York in 1882. Around the world outside the US, socialist and labor movements are observed on May 1 to recognize organized labor's social and economic achievements and the workers in them. This day gets scant attention in the US, but where it's prominent it's common to remember the Haymarket Riot of May 4, 1886, in Chicago. It followed the city's May 1 general strike for an eight-hour day that led to violence breaking out on the Fourth."

Travails of the Super-Rich

Barbara Ehrenreich writes for the Nation: "On Labor Day we customarily give a nod to America's underpaid and overworked blue- and pink-collar workers - janitors, flight attendants, forklift operators and the like. But this year let's go a step further and salute the most reviled and despised of the people who make our economy happen - the mere mention of whom causes the average forklift operator to spit on the floor. You are thinking, perhaps, of telemarketers, human traffickers and the friends who answer the phone when you to try to make a claim on your health insurance. But I'm talking about our CEOs."
