May Day Being Observed

May 1: International Labour Day is being observed across the country on Wednesday (today). Also known as May Day, this day is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the contributions of workers and the ongoing struggle of the working class. 

Labour Day has its roots in the late nineteenth-century labour movement, when workers battled for improved working conditions, advocating an eight-hour workday and fair salaries.

Many businesses and government offices are closed as the government has declared it a public holiday to observe the May Day. 

Trade unions and workers' associations organize various programs and events to commemorate the day and highlight the importance of workers' rights and achievements.
