1st May is a globally recognized holiday that acknowledges the achievements of the labour movement. It is commonly known as International Workers’ Day or May Day, and is celebrated in more than 80 countries with a public holiday.

New York was the first state to introduce a bill recognizing Labor Day, while Oregon was the first to pass a law on it, on February 21, 1887. Later in 1889, the Marxist International Socialist Congress adopted a resolution for a great international demonstration in which they demanded that workers should not be made to work for more than 8 hours a day. Along with this, it was also decided that May 1 will be declared a holiday.
