May Day Rally Anyone?

How clever to name it May Day Rally. Either, the ship is sinking or it's on fire....

Yes. The local nonresident workers are up to it again for their voice to be heard once again.

I first read about this from Unheard No More blog but the news today says that the Dekada Movement would be joining the “May Day” rally on May 1. The group is calling on all workers in the Commonwealth-local and foreign alike-to unite and join in this celebration and call to action.

The rally will start at Fishing Base across the Kristo Rai Church in Garapan at 6pm on Friday and proceed to the American Memorial Park's amphitheater.

“The business community and general public should also join this effort because they have common interests and the economic future of the CNMI depends on capitalizing on those common interests,” according to Dekada president Boni Sagana in a statement issued yesterday.

May Day is a day to celebrate the Labor movement and the fight for workers rights. It should be celebrated by everyone with employer provided health care, overtime, and OSHA protections

Yeah but what about when those workers are from foreign countries, and their presence has so many negative effects on the local populace?

gOO$e, why don't you ask the owners of the recruiting agencies that brought those foreign workers here? You know... the ones with that "self perceived aristocratic chamorro pedigree".
