Labor Day Meaning

What is Labor Day:

Labor Day, also known as International Workers' Day, is celebrated on May 1 in most parts of the world. It is a celebration of the world labor movement in commemoration of their social and labor struggles.

May Day, as it is also called, is considered a day to demand labor demands or make improvements to workers' conditions.

It was declared as a commemorative date at the Workers' Congress of the Second Socialist International, held in Paris in 1889, in recognition of the Chicago martyrs.

At present, this day is commemorated in practically the whole world, although, paradoxically, in the United States, where it originated, its equivalent celebration, the Labor day, is celebrated on the first Monday of September.

Today, the May Day celebrations are considered the origin of the modern labor movement.
