Happy May Day from Memphis DSA (Democratic Socialists of America)! It is a perilous time for American workers. Our political leaders have forced austerity budget cuts upon us to spare the corporate rich from necessary tax increases and the already weak social "safety net," including Social Security and Medicare, are under attack. Labor Unions are facing mounting obstacles blocking their ability to organize and defend workers. Now is the time to unite and fight back!
Join DSA and other progressive/left and labor groups on this May Day to celebrate the achievements of the labor movement and unite to fight for the rights of all workers to living wages and benefits earned from their labor.
Visit DSA's Talking Union Website to learn more about labor issues and organizations to support and join.
