Labour Day is celebrated across the world every year on May 1. It is popularly known as International Workers’ Day. The day honours and appreciates the contribution of the workers in various sectors and industries. Employees get off on May Day to enjoy the federal holiday.
In the late 19th century, workers fought for better working conditions, started the eight-hour schedule movement and promoted fair wages. The aim of the workers was to introduce a schedule of eight hours for labour, eight hours for recreation and fun activities, and eight hours for rest.
