The police were trying to disperse a public assembly during a general strike for the eight-hour workday, when an unidentified person threw a bomb at them. The police reacted by firing on the workers, killing four demonstrators. “Reliable witnesses testified that all the pistol flashes came from the center of the street, where the police were standing, and none from the crowd.

  1. Labor day is a good day for a trip to the beach for me. But it’s a good time to also reflect on how America has changed over the years to provide benefits and better working conditions for its workers. I’m living in a third world country now, and one really gets to see the differences.

      So much different if you’re living in the third world country. Labour day is also a better option for workers to really go out and involve with some other recreational activities, and just have fun after all it’s a work free day. Thanks for dropping by Grayspirit.
