International Worker Solidarity Day - join with people from all over RI to celebrate the people who check us out at the grocery store, fix our cars, harvest and prepare our food, clean our buildings,teach our children, care for our elders, do the daily chores of state and city government, fix our roads and bridges, make the tools we use, staff our hospitals.... the people (US!) who make things work.
