Friday Mixtape: Mixtapers of the world, UNITE! 

By Josh Gross

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.
