Labour Day Facebook Covers For Students
Labour Day is set to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the labour class. It is celebrated on different days in different countries. However, in most of the countries the day occurs on the 1st of May that happens to be International Workers’ Day.
The condition of the labourers was very poor in the earlier times. They were required to toil hard and work for up to 15 hours a day. They suffered injuries and faced other horrible problems at their workplace. Despite the hard work put in by them, these people were paid meager wages. The increasing number of health problems incurred by these people due to the long working hours and lack of good sources to get those problems cured led to the labour unions raising voice against this system. Agitated labourers formed unions that fought for their rights for quite a while. Following this, the 8-hour work shift was set for the labourers and working class people. This is also referred to as the eight hour day movement. As per this, a person should work only for eight hours. He must get eight hours for recreation and eight hours for rest. Labour Day has its origin in this movement.
Though the history and origin of Labour Day differs in different countries however the main reason behind it remains the same and that is unfair treatment of the labour class. It was quite unfortunate that the class of people that contributed immensely towards the infrastructural development of the country was treated poorly. Various movements took place against this in different parts of the world and this day finally came into being.
The labour class is indeed the one that requires indulging in various laborious tasks. A special day to appreciate and recognize their contribution towards the society is certainly well-deserved.
