This Labor Day, we’re honoring those who fought for an eight-hour workday in the lead up to and the aftermath of the 1886 Haymarket Affair, also known as the Haymarket Riot.
Just as their rallying cry of “eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, eight hours for what we will” thundered down Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, it echoes today, too, in the eight-hour work day that persists until this day.
Simply put, they fought. They won. We all reap the benefits.
As an homage to the workers of the Haymarket Affair and the eight-hour work day, we’re thrilled to announce our first ever 8-8-8 Sale!
