The International Workers’ Day is celebrated on the 1st of May, to commemorate the workers movement and the workforce all around the world, as part of a claiming movement for different causes related to work labour.
More than a hundred years ago, factories were workplaces in which men, women, old people, and children worked equally, with working days of more than 12 daily hours. This extenuating workday did not give the chance to workers to recover, rest or enjoy their free time.
Workers had to fight for a lot of years to achieve a workday of 8 hours, even at the expense of their own lives. Currently, the International Worker’s Day has become an ephemeris festive, but it must not be forgotten that this day honours those who fight for a dignified life for all workers.
