Occupy Prepares For May Day: No Work, No School, No Banking

•, by Allison Kilkenny
 Occupy Wall Street hopes to capture headlines once again next week with the May 1 "General Strike", long-advertised by the group as an event that will prove to the public and media that OWS is currently experiencing a resurgence. Whether workers, students, or banking customers, OWS is calling on all Americans to stop offering their labor and money to corporations for one day and join their local Occupy chapter for a day of resistance.
The plan initially drew the ire of some labor leaders who quickly declared their members would not participate in the so-called strike.

"It won't happen," Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union flatly told Buzzfeed. "They are not working with the unions in a serious way yet; nor are the unions working with them in a serious way. And it is the wrong strategy."
