International Labour Day or May Day

  • International Labour Day, observed annually on May 1, is a global tribute to the invaluable contributions of workers and the ongoing struggles of the working class. Originating from the late nineteenth-century labour movement, this day, also known as May Day, commemorates the historic fight for improved working conditions and fair treatment.
  • The roots of International Labour Day trace back to a pivotal event in American history. In 1886, workers rallied for the establishment of an eight-hour workday, culminating in a massive demonstration. However, tensions flared in Chicago, leading to the tragic 'Haymarket Affair,' which ultimately became the catalyst for the inception of International Labour Day.
  • Formally established in 1889 by socialist parties across Europe, International Labour Day emerged as a dedicated occasion to honour workers worldwide. Recognised as a day of solidarity and advocacy, it serves to raise awareness about workers' rights, combat exploitation, and foster initiatives for better working conditions.

The states were divided based on language after massive protests. Every year people of the state celebrate this day with great pomp and fervour.
  • The history of Maharashtra Day dates back to 1956 when the States Reorganisation Act was passed. This act led to the division of the Bombay Presidency into the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat in 1960, with Maharashtra officially becoming a separate state on May 1, 1960.
