Let me start off by saying that I am honored to host this week’s edition of the Festival of Frugality. Before doing a little research, I had no idea what May Day was. May Day (also known as International Workers’ Day) is a commemoration of the 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicago which was a movement to symbolize working class solidarity. This year Occupy Wall Street plans to demonstrate their own International Workers’ Day movement today. Occupy Wall Street’s message has been to call attention to what they say are abuses of power and wealth of the 1%.
Here is my submission to the festival:
