International Workers Day

May 1, or “May Day,” is International Workers Day. It commemorates the struggles and achievements of working people everywhere. The day is recognized in most countries of the world but not in the United States. May Day started in 1886 when workers in Chicago were struggling for an eight-hour workday. At that time, workers labored for twelve to fourteen hours a day. Even now many people work more than eight hours a day.
