MAY 1, 2013 – JTMP recognizes and honors May Day, or International Worker's Day, a holiday dedicated to workers and their rights, and unions. JTMP believes we need to raise the minimum wage and strengthen unions. We urge all our supporters to get out to the streets and let your voice be heard, and fight for worker's rights. Try to find events in your local area! If you are in New York, check out the awesome stuff going on with Occupy Wall Street Music Group, for they have several events and are marching with the Guitarmy for worker's rights.
