International Workers’ Day

1 May 2021

The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it. – Mother Teresa

May Day, is also called Workers’ Day or International Workers’ Day. The first day of May was made a Labour Day to commemorate tragic events that happened in 1886 during the demonstration on the Haymarket Square in Chicago. May Day celebrates the contribution and sacrifice of workers to and for the society. The day’s importance dates back to the times when workers in the United States started protesting against draconian labour laws, workers’ rights violations, poor working conditions and dreadful working hours. May Day is synonymous to workers’ struggles and the subsequent empowerment in the late 19th century.
