Significance of Labour Day

Shreyas Joshi, PGP 2018, writes a very interesting blog where he pens his thoughts and points of view. In his latest blog, he talks about the International Significance of labour day.

A few lines from his blog:

May 1 is marked as International Labour Day, also referred to as May Day. The day celebrates labourers and the working class.

Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement in the United States.
During industrialisation in the beginning of the 19th Century, industrialists used to exploit the labour class and made them work up to 15 hours a day. The workers rose against this exploitation and demanded paid leaves, proper wages and breaks for the workforce.
