May Day ~~ Say Fair Wage Pay Day. Wait~~ The Prices Might Go UP. Downsides are such a bummer.

Bear selected May Day as a subject for this round of music. Admittedly I’ve fudged on some of the music here. I reserve the right to revise at will.  Until then Labor is the issue. Unless Bear had another kind of May Day in mind–as in the Maypole kind of May Day. Hmm. Anyway back to Union ordeals. Workers just don’t get much respect when it comes down to the bottom lines.

A few income figures of interest to a few Americans–well, to everyone who is not one of the 894 people who have more income than 99.99% of the rest of the people.

There are reasons people gather in unions in order to get a living wage–a main one is that many employers don’t like sharing the profits. The operative word here is greed. Or am I missing something?

    For years I subscribed to Mother Jones. The only periodical I received.

    Anonymous called for a general strike, day before yesterday.

    Yay! Joan Baez :-)

      Mother Jones is a great periodical.
      A general strike— do you have an information link to share?
      Joan and her sister rock. :) I thought you might like that one. I could have done this much differently but it’s okay. :) Thanks for dropping a link to your post. Much appreciate that, Bear.

    Corporations…we need Mother Jones! Great statement, Eva. I love Ani. Happy May Day. :)

      You know, Johnny, I wonder if the magazine has an actor to promote Mother Jones.
      Hmm. Hey thanks for visiting and viewing.
