The International Labour Day

The International Labour Day or May Day, also known as International Labor Day, Labor Day, is the Labour Day in most countries in the world. The festival originated from the workers’ strike in Chicago, USA. To commemorate this great workers’ movement, the 1st International Conference of Inauguration in 1889 announced that May 1 of each year was designated as International Labor Day. The State Council of the People's Government of China made a decision in December 1949 to determine May 1st as Labor Day. After 1989, the State Council basically commended the nation’s labor model and advanced every five years.
