About Labour Day
Each year the first day of May is celebrated as May Day. May Day is also known as Labor Day and International worker’s Day, which celebrates the social and economic achievement of the labor movement. The socialist Labour Party is responsible for the creation of Labour Day. Labor Day is celebrated on May 1 in many countries around the world and it is still often a day for protests and rallies. On this day, various labour organizations across the country carry out processions and organize competitions for children belonging to labour class. The origins of unions' existence can be traced from the eighteenth century, where the rapid expansion of industrial society drew women, children, rural workers, and immigrants to the work force in larger numbers and in new roles. International Workers' Day or May Day is a celebration of the social and economic achievements of the international labor movement. May Day commonly sees organized street demonstrations and street marches by millions of working people and their labour unions throughout most of the countries of the world. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, l883. According to History, on this day labor unions across the US went to strike for demanding for eight working hours per a day.
