Labour Day- It

New Delhi: MayDay, also known  as Labour day is celebrated all over the world to praise labour and working class. 
Every country has different reasons and stories behind the celebration of this day.

The Labour day originated in the United States during the Labour Union Moments. During the initial stage of industrialisation, workers were made to work more than 15 hours a day. This exploitation lead to a rebellion where workers demanded proper wages, paid leaves and recess for work force.
