Salem's Market and Grill

Come together to honor and celebrate immigrants and workers who are often overlooked and undervalued

This May Day, come together to honor and celebrate immigrants and workers who are often overlooked and undervalued. It is especially important to uplift and center domestic workers, child care workers, sex workers, construction workers, restaurant workers, refugee workers and all other workers whose survival work remains unrecognized. This Mayday, say: there is no small work — all workers are valuable!

All workers deserve living wages and the right to organize. All workers deserve comfort and joy. All workers deserve dignity and respect. All workers deserve to be honored and supported, not because all our struggles are the same, but because our lives are worth defending in their own right. All workers need wages, but we also need roses too.

Join a march and celebration this Mayday at Salem’s Market & Grill! Make time to uplift, honor and center our joy whenever we can.

Este Primero de Mayo, nos reunimos para celebrar a los inmigrantes y trabajadores que no son reconocidos. Sobre todo elevaremos y centraremos a las trabajadoras domésticas, a los trabajadores de cuidado de niños, a los trabajadores de la construcción, a las trabajadoras sexuales, a los trabajadores de restaurantes, a los trabajadores refugiados y a todos los demás trabajadores que sus trabajo de supervivencia no es reconocido.

Este Primero De Mayo, decimos: no hay trabajos pequeños, ¡todos los trabajadores son valiosos!

Todos los trabajadores merecen salarios dignos y el derecho a organizarse. Merecemos felicidad y alegría. Merecemos dignidad y respeto. Merecemos ser honrados y apoyados, no porque todas nuestras luchas son iguales, sino porque vale la pena defender nuestras vidas por derecho propio. Necesitamos salarios dignos, pero también necesitamos rosas.

¡Únete este Primero De Mayo para una marcha y celebración en Salem’s Market & Grill a las 6pm! Es importante que hagamos tiempo para elevar, honrar y centrar nuestra alegría cada vez que podamos. Nos vemos allí.
