Skip to comments.May 1 closures: who to boycott? Rallies (Live thread)

This should be a list of who is planning to close their business on Monday, May 1 in response of the Great American Boycott. We should compile it and boycott them ourselves if possible!
Remember to go shopping or work overtime on May 1!
This is a good idea. We should come back and post who was closed.
Well, I know that the cafeteria in my building will be closed. I aint eatin' there ever again.
We do need a list. I am paying close attention to the news and papers and word of mouth.
One of my favorite mexican restuarants is staying open. Yay! Didn't want to write em' off forever. Because I will.
Nothing is happening in my area, so little changes for me - at least locally.
I was reading that some of the individual store owners downtown are concerned but are opening and taking a wait and see approach. I really think it will be Americans that take off work though.
Unless May 1 falls on the weekend and it is a normal day off, there is NO excuse to take off a day meant to celebrate communism. Even the North American labor unions have rejected that day (except for fringe commie elements) and they have a more reasonable Labor Day...
With the exception of tomorrow, I'll take any Monday off that I can:')
The whole thing makes me mad as hell.
In other words, they are all walking out?
Any of these types of business that has to close for the day is good, and maby they strikes will happen more often , and close them permanently so we can rid our nation of this type of tax payer subsidized illegal-black market-labor practices.
For a while many have been calling on going after employers for hiring illegals, laugh but we dont need to if the illegals will go after them for us
These strikers are only exposing which business are hiring illegally, and will hurt the employees most if the business loose revenue, not the US tax payer.
Bingo! Let them strike every Monday!
Did anyone else's city have a candlight vigil? I looked around my cul-de-sac to see who still had their lights on. I was happy to see that the only people with their lights off looked like they just weren't home or were asleep.
The news media interviewed Mexicans in Springfield Mo. and one of the Mexican business owners said they are going to march tomorrow but they will do it in a larger city, so as not to offend people here. They don't want to leave their feces in their own nests where people can retaliate, they'll go leave it elsewhere, where they will blend right in.
It will be intersting to see this play out.
Uno de Mayo!
They one and all said they would be closed in support of the boycott.
I live in West Phoenix, a neighborhood that has gone predominately Hispanic in the 10 years I have been here. I see porch lights on up and down the street, no candles burning anywhere!
A quick trip to DUmmieland shows that a bunch of them are supporting tomorrows boycott as far as shopping goes... http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x1069368
LMAO... DUmmies are supporting it... all my legal immigrant "Hispanic" neighbors think it's a joke!
If we can show internet solidarity by boycotting them, our voice will be heard next time.
Send emails and chain letters to everyone you know asking them to boycott Tyson Foods, until they go broke.
