This International Workers’ Day, let’s join the Amazon Labor Union and Starbucks Workers United’s call to fight to unionize every workplace, put an end to union busting, and organize together to improve our working conditions and the world.

The pandemic showed the role we play as workers in this society. All value comes from labor. Our working conditions worsened as the bosses made record profits. We put our lives at risk, kept society functioning, and were even called “heroes.” But now, as we ask for better conditions, capitalists only offer us crumbs and treat us disposable. 

We can’t make ends meet, the cost of living continues to increase, prices are soaring, and many of us are in debt. Capitalists want to unload the economic crisis onto our shoulders and keep their profits intact. It is outrageous that just one man can spend $44 billion to buy Twitter while there are so many urgent needs in our society, from housing to healthcare and more.

Workers are fed up, and fighting back. The historic victory of the Amazon Labor Union on Staten Island and the increasing union victories in Starbucks cafes across the country are a source of inspiration for millions of unorganized and precarious workers. 

They didn’t only shake up the labor movement, but also the union labor leaders who are used to working with bosses and getting benefits at the expense of workers. They represent a new generation of workers, organizing from the bottom up. ALU is proposing that every board member of the union gets the same salary as an average worker — an example that should be followed in every union. They are also fighting for a wage of $30/hr. The fight for $15 already fell short years ago, and even more this year. 

It is time to raise the living conditions of the working class. We are the ones who run the world and create all wealth.

This May Day, join Left Voice to support these struggles and build a fighting labor movement that is politically independent from both the Democratic and Republican parties.

Friday, April 29, 5:30pm: Art build at Washington Sq. Park.

Sunday, May 1, 12pm: Meet up at Washington Sq. park for May Day activities.

If you can’t make it for the rally at 12 pm on May Day, we will also be tabling at the Festival of Resistance in Maria Hernandez Park, Brooklyn from 1pm – 7pm.

Joe Biden Is Afraid of the UAW Strike. That’s a Good Thing.

A few days ago, Biden called on the bosses of the Big Three automakers to give concessions to the striking UAW workers. It’s because he’s scared of the UAW’s power.

To Win, the UAW Strike Must Be Organized from Below

The strike at the Big Three has put the working class at the center of national politics. The autoworkers’ demands are bold and touch on issues of growing exploitation across the country. To win big, the strike must be organized from below.

China’s Rise, ‘Diminished Dependency,’ and Imperialism in Times of World Disorder

In this broad-ranging interview, originally published in LINKS, Trotskyist Fraction member Esteban Mercatante discusses how recent global shifts in processes of capital accumulation have contributed to China’s rise, the new (and old) mechanisms big powers use to plunder the Global South, and its implications for anti-imperialist and working-class struggles today.

The Housing Crisis and Migrant Crisis Are Crises of Capitalism

As thousands of people come to the U.S. seeking shelter, politicians around the country are claiming that housing in the U.S. is already in crisis and that there is no room for them. Both the “migrant crisis” and “housing crisis” are crises created and exacerbated by capitalism.
