In America, we celebrate work on Labor Day. But in the rest of the world, they do it on May Day, the first of that flower-filled month, which is also the date that massive demonstrations in 1886 helped to establish the eight-hour workday, with much resistance on behalf of the robber barons. So, in solidarity, we made a mixtape of work and union songs, including everything from classics by Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger to neo-classics like Dead Prez's hip-hop retelling of the worker exploitation in George Orwell's Animal Farm.
