September 5, 2016: The Radical Origins of Labor Day
Before I kick off a Labor Day week series on work in American literature and culture, here’s a link to a Talking Points Memo piece I wrote on the holiday’s forgotten radical histories and why it’s vital that we remember them in our 21st century moment. I’d love to hear your thoughts on that piece and on any other Labor Day connections you’d highlight, whether over there or in comments here!
Series starts tomorrow,
PS. What do you think? Other Labor Day histories or contexts you’d share?
