International Workers' Day today!

International Workers' Day today!
We remember the eternal struggle between employer and employee. I hope everyone is doing well today! I present a fun little English folk song for today, The Ballad of Harry Pollitt (link to lyrics; note that the ballad was sung even before he died). He was General Secretary of the Communist Part of Great Britain.

N.B. There are several versions of the ballad. Video:

I never celebrate International Workers' Day.  It's all I can do to work in one country at a time.

Here's one in spirit, about pre-union working conditions.

I fail to see the irony. Who else would want a day off?
