Labour Day (Labor Day in the United States) is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. For many countries, Labour Day is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on 1 May. For other countries, Labour Day is celebrated on a different date, often one with special significance for the labour movement in that country. In Canada and the United States, it is celebrated on the first Monday of September and considered the official end of the summer holiday for most of the respective countries, as public school and university students return to school that week or the following week.
In India, labour Day is a public holiday held on every May 1 and celebrated as Antarrashtriya Shramik Diwas. 1 May is also celebrated as Maharashtra Day and Gujarat Day to mark the date in 1960, when the two western states attained statehood after the erstwhile Bombay State was divided on linguistic lines.
