It is the general rest day for labor. Hurray!!, May 1st is celebrated across the globe as a workers’ holiday, a special time of the year set aside to celebrate and honor workers around the world, to salute the hard work and dedication of the strong willed souls whose contributions move the nation forward irrespective of challenges, hardship and economic situations.
Come to think of it, how is the ideal way to celebrate workers day? Is it just a day off for you to rest and get that long sleep? Workers are always excited when it comes to public holidays but this particular one goes beyond just resting.
It is often said that the labor of our heroes past shall never be in vain. We need to continue where they have stopped and in shedding light on the long history of our struggles, the workers day celebration is a time to reflect on the working conditions of the various levels of workers in the nation.
This is why during the celebrations, trade unions march and rallies are held to address issues such as low payment of salaries, unemployment and the likes.
