…about #Mayday, past & upcoming. Please share yours

  • “Millions of workers around the world will be marking May Day today (1st May) and over the next few days.

    The media and the mainstream politicians will attempt to gloss over the real meaning of this holiday. But it will be a celebration of the struggle of workers and ordinary poor people through the ages for a decent life.

    The NSSN believes that this 2013 International Workers’ Day must be more than a memorial.

    NSSN national chair Rob Williams said: “The first May Day in 1886 was the first general strike in the USA, called to fight for an eight hour day.”

About @NatM4Equity

The National Mobilization for Equity is a coalition of organizations committed to alleviating the present staffing crisis in higher education: three-quarters of the teaching jobs in American colleges are held by underpaid, precarious and poorly-supported contingent faculty. Our long-term goal is to end contingency as the norm. The current untenable situation not only adversely affects all faculty members, both contingent and tenure-track, it also negatively impacts our profession, our students and the quality of their education.
