May Day Follow Up 08

Imagine if we had really strong May Day rallies... What might happen?

The government of President Hugo Chavez marked the international workers’ day by decreeing a 30% increase in the minimum wage (already the highest in Latin America) as well as a 30% wage increase across the board for public service workers.


Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak proposed on Wednesday a salary increase of about 30 percent for public-sector employees to compensate them for recent large increases in prices, especially of food.

Maybe it is time for a strong May Day (workers') organization in Albuquerque.....
