Condemned Chicago Workers
"And I long to see the day when Labor will have the destiny of the nation in her own hands and she will stand as a united force and show the world what the workers can do." --- Mary Harris "Mother" Jones, 1830-1930. Today is Mayday, Workers Rights Day. It's celebrated each year on May 1st, but its origins live in the past and historians like Studs Terkel say it's important to revive the memory of when history was made. WBAI's Linda Perry takes a look back.
