This Thursday, May 1st, has been celebrated since the 1890’s as “International Workers’ Day”, but this year, President Obama came out to celebrate “Loyalty Day” on the first of May, a holiday designation meant to replace a recognition of all that workers do for society with a celebration of “the reaffirmation of loyalty to the United States and for the recognition of the heritage of American freedom”. To discuss this and many other labor-related issues, I invited the man I know who is most loyal to the labor movement, Doug Cunningham of Workers Independent News, to join us and discuss where we are, where we are going, and how celebrating workers is possibly the best way to recognize the heritage of American freedom.
