Friday Mixtape: Mixtapers of the world, UNITE!

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.

    "Nuclear Doomsday Clock Reset—Ticks Closest to Midnight in 64 Years

    Think you're the only one feeling on edge lately? Think again. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, reset the Nuclear Doomsday clock to 2 and a half minutes to midnight— the closest its been in 64 years. Not since the start of the Nuclear Arms Race between America and Russia, 64 years ago in 1953 has the minutes sat so close to proclaimed "doom."
