Labor Day is Celebrated all over countries On 1 May
Labor Day is celebrated all over the country on 1st May. It is also called Mayday. Labor Day falls in the month of May on Tuesday in the year 2018. In the next year 2019, it falls on Wednesday. International Labor Day is celebrated all over the countries such as Iran, China, India, Ghana, Nigeria and many more. This day is fully dedicated to workers. International Labor Day is a symbol of hard duty of workers and it indicates they are diligent and do toil to earn their living. Labor Day is celebrated by union workers to give the message that workers have equal rights as a normal citizen. They have to raise their voices if any type of cruelty performed to them by industrialists. On this day laborers have to discuss the issues, problems that they faced throughout the year and reach the conclusion how to sort out their problems in an easy way.
With the rise in industrialization in the United States and other countries, exploitation increased against workers, so workers in unity decided to raise a voice against exploitation. In some countries various activities performed by workers considered as illegal but workers were more agitated towards the exploitation they came forward to protest against industrialists, keep their jobs at risk. Finally, the government accepted their plea and foundation of some laws that were in favor of laborers.
It is a reality throughout the history there was conflicts arise between workers and employers. The first quarrel was held in 3000 BCE and 1500 BCE between workers and employers because employers treated workers as slaves. Moreover, employers did not get their basic needs of survival. They have to give the only minimum, food shelter, and clothing after their hard work. Apart from that, they have to offer only minimum wages after a long hour of duty.
Labor Laws Are Introduced In Many Countries to Prevent Them from Harsh Environment
The union workers in the United States demanded eight hours duty. Because industrialists exploited workers badly so in order to prevent from the long time of working hours they raised slogans and went on strike. In the Philippines, the rally was organized by workers to remove injustice and unfairness towards them as well as to reduce their duty up to 8 hours. In many countries, workers face harsh environment, receive unfair behavior through industrialists Sometimes employers forced them to work under poor conditions.
So in order to prevent exploitation labor laws introduced throughout the country. Labor laws protected the laborer from the harsh environment if any employer enforced any worker for any kind of extra work and exploitation. Labor laws framed to protect the workers from injustice and unfairness. So in every country labor laws established which are known as employment laws that usually work for the right of workers. According to labor law, it is considered illegal if workers work for 20 hours a day without any kind of health benefit, workplace security, safety assistance. The world labor laws are framed for the welfare of workers. So, after a long period of struggle, the government implemented the labor laws that are in favor of workers as well as reduce the duty hours of workers to eight hours.So after these changes workers start to celebrate this Labor Day every year all over the world.
It is a reality that for laborers the work is worship. It is work which leads to glory. They feel that through hard work can lay the foundation of a healthy nation. A life of labor is much more pleasant than the life of idleness, Rest is rust for them. They feel that work keeps us strong and healthy. It gives us dignity and self-respect. An idler however rich he may be lives on the labor of others. Such people are the burden on society. They are not respected by anyone. But a worker holds his head high. The world belongs to those who work. If we work hard all difficulties will fade away/ Work indeed is worship. Even god favors the workers.
Labors make the nation great and strong. Laborers are the pride of a nation. They always hold the responsibilities in every field of life. He is conscious of his rights and his duties. They never forget the duties that he owes to society. He works for national unity. Patriotism is the only religion for them. They take an active part in the national affairs. They keep their eyes and ears open. They know everything about their surroundings. But they do not tolerate any anti-national activity. They live a clean and honest life. They fight for truth and justice.
I strongly believe that labor laws prevent the workers from harsh conditions and give the authority to get adequate compensation for their hard work. These laws prevent them from slavery and kind of exploitation.
