Photos: Labor Day in Tahrir Square

Workers from the Real Estate Tax Authority Employees' Union and the Public Transport Authority Workers' Union (recently established independent associations) demand a minimum wage, and express their support for the January 25 Revolution.

Workers, unionists and labor activists chant in support of Egypt's growing independent union movement.
