Rosa Luxemburg on the roots of May Day.

May Day, the start of the 8-hour work day. Started in Australia in 1856, a day of complete work stoppage to try to get the work-day down to 8 hours max, and it spread to the United Stares.

This is what labor unions are all about, to help workers get fairer conditions.
