Residents celebrate May Day in Brooklyn park
People around the borough Saturday celebrated May Day, which supports workers around the world.
Organizers said the community event, held at Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick, lifted up working-class immigrant neighborhoods.
The movement grew largely from the labor movement of the 19th century -- championing rights like fair wages and an eight-hour workday.
Organizers say while the holiday celebrates the rights of everyone earning a paycheck, there's a particular focus on low-income workers who are often not treated fairly.
