May 1st is traditionally celebrated around the world – “workers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your chains.” Now in the time of COVID-19 and given the devastating effect the virus has had on the U.S. workforce, May 1, 2020 has a more up-to-date relevance. Today is the day that many states are lifting some of their lockdown restrictions. Whether this is too soon or not soon enough remains to be seen in terms of the risk of a new wave of COVID-19 versus restarting the economy.
