labour day 2013: low-wage workers rising

This week, port truckers went on strike in California, and fast-food workers in more than 60 cities walked off their jobs.

Today in the US, Labor Day is Walmart's last day to respond before Walmart workers intensify their nationwide actions on September 5.

In Toronto, hotel workers won a huge victory through their union, the United Steelworkers, ending their 13-week strike by winning a contract without the huge concessions their employer was demanding.

Labour rights are human rights. And this is how change happens: enjoy this pics from the fast-food workers' national campaign.
