International Workers’ Day
International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day or May Day, is celebrated on the first of May every year to honor the achievements and contributions of workers around the world. It has its roots in the labor movement of the late 19th century when workers began fighting for better working conditions and pay. Today, International Workers’ Day is a chance to celebrate all workers – from manual laborers to office workers – and their valuable contribution to our society. Let’s take a moment on this day to appreciate all that workers do for us!
The history of International Workers’ Day and how it came to be
International Workers’ Day, or Labour Day as it is sometimes called, is celebrated every year on May 1st to honor the vital role that workers have played throughout history in powering economic growth and development. The origins of this day can be traced back to the late 19th century when labor protests were organized by the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions in response to industrial practices of the time which threatened workers’ rights and safety.
It was first officially declared a day of celebration in 1889 and has grown into an international holiday occurring annually to celebrate workforces around the world. Since then, nations from every corner of the globe have come together to remember their past struggles and recognize present-day accomplishments through celebrations honoring those who make up their labor community.
From rallies and marches in major cities to activists’ speeches on local radio shows, International Workers’ Day continues to mark a special occasion for laborers all over the planet.
Why we celebrate International Workers’ Day every year
Every year on May 1st, International Workers’ Day, we pause to honor the hardworking people who have been and continue to be the backbone of our society. This holiday traces its origins back to 1886 when American labor organizers declared that eight hours of work should constitute a day’s labor.
Since then, the struggle for worker rights has seen tremendous progress around the world, making International Workers’ Day an opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments in improving working conditions and wages for millions of people. This public holiday is both a reminder and celebration of the immense contribution workers have made towards worldwide economic progress and social justice.
