Google celebrates International Labour Day with special doodle

The day is also known as International Workers' Day, a holiday that is celebrated by about 80 countries with the exception of the United States, because of the holiday's association with communism.

But May Day also coincides with International Workers' Day, which is tied up in the history of unions, and of the fight for the improvement of workers' rights. The holiday traces its origins to the trade union and labour movement that demanded 8-hour work days that allow for 8 hours of recreation and 8 hours of rest.

Millions of people celebrate May 1 as a day devoted to the rights of workers and the working class.

"Labour Day, usually a public holiday, is synonymous with the International Workers" Day or Workers' Day for most countries, and is marked on 1 May.

In his Speech, the Chairman, Nigeria Labour Congress, Lagos State Council, Idowu Adelakun commended the Lagos State Government for prompt payment of salaries, infrastructural development, security, plans for proposed Pension Review for workers, zero tolerance for job loss, among others.

While in some countries such as the U.S., workers are celebrated in September on Labor Day, in countries such as Russian Federation and the UK, Labour Day is commemorated on May 1, also known as May Day.

Labour day is the day to celebrate and be thankful for these building blocks of our world. With such large workforce, labour welfare is a very important issue in India and requires adequate attention.
