  • It's May Day. Here's what that means

While in some countries such as the United States, workers are celebrated in September on Labor Day, in countries such as Russian Federation and the UK, Labour Day is commemorated on May 1, also known as May Day.

People who worked most, earned less and did not have time to study and to top up their qualification, she added.

But May Day also coincides with International Workers' Day, which is tied up in the history of unions, and of the fight for the improvement of workers' rights.

The concept of Labour Day originated in the 1800s, when industrials used to exploit the labour class by making them work for up to 15 hours a day.

The date was chosen by a pan-national organisation of socialist and communist political parties to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886.

On this special day, I wish all the labour and workers a very special May Day and wish the year to be great and successful one. OR became the first state to recognize Labor Day as an official public holiday in 1887.


The most prominent of those laws is the Factories Act of 1948 that supervises the disbursement of fair wages to factory workers in addition to ensuring lawful working hours and overtime benefits.

Reportedly, students and a number of employees of trade unions are among the detained.

On May 1, 1913, in San José, at 8:00 in the morning the events began with a parade to La Sabana, with a large mobilization of people in addition to various sporting, cultural events, and speeches by leaders of the workers' movement and intellectuals.

Authorities also barred access to the city's main shopping street, the pedestrianised Istiklal Avenue, which has in the past been the scene of protest marches.

The Google Doodle for May 1 celebrates Labour Day, marking International Workers' Day and celebrating the rights of workers and the working class. On this Labour Day, do not forget to salute the determination and hard work of countless workers who play a big role in India's progress.
