Every year on May 1, people around the world observe World Labour Day, sometimes referred to as International Workers’ Day or May Day, to honour the contributions that workers make to society. It honours the historical struggle of workers for improved pay, working conditions, and hours.
The day also acts as a reminder of the ongoing initiatives being made to safeguard workers’ rights and advance ethical labour standards all across the world.
To honour the contributions that workers make to their countries’ economies and to advance labourers’ rights, many nations, including Pakistan, have declared May 1 a public holiday.
Workers’ rights groups and trade unions frequently organise demonstrations, parades, and other events on this day to promote labour problems and push for improved pay and working conditions.
