Labour Day or International Workers’ Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. The day, also called ‘May Day,’ is also observed as a public holiday in many countries. The day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement. While the day has different origins in different countries, the main reason for Labour Day is the unfair treatment of the labour class. In India, Labour Day is referred to as Antarrashtriya Shramik Diwas or Kamgar Din.
