RCPress Interview: History of May Day and the Return of the Second Gilded Age

Kitchen Interviews Loomis 5-1-13Hello Raging Chicken Press readers and members!

And Happy Holiday!  I would like to introduce Erik Loomis to our 8th episode of the Raging Chicken Press interview series, where activism meets the netroots.  Erik is a labor historian at the University of Rhode Island and a writer for Lawyers, Guns and Money.  Erik took some time out of his busy day to pre-record a segment on the history of May Day, the 8 hour work day and the return of the Gilded Age.
