It’s not just any Monday, today is May Day or International Workers’ Day.

This year, the struggle for worker’s rights is making headlines across the country, and at big names in Seattle like Amazon and Starbucks.

KUOW’s Labor and Economy reporter Monica Nickelsburg is here to talk about worker power right now, and what the future may hold.
