This 6th of September, people throughout the United States of America would be celebrating the annual labor day to pay homage to the millions of laborers and workers who have played a very significant part in making the country what it is today. The annual labor day, celebrated on the first Monday of September every year, brings back the memories of people in the heyday of the industrial revolution in USA, working 12 hour days every week, without any concern for their physical safety or mental wellbeing, only to earn a day’s basic living expenses. To make matters even worse, it was not only grown men who sold their soul to support their families, but children as young as 5 or 6 years old were also made to work in mills, factories, and mines throughout the country.
As the working men started struggles for an improvement in their economic, social, and political fortunes, they faced stiff resistance from the status quo powers. The struggle between the laborers and authorities often turned violent, as happened in Haymarket Riot of 1886, which resulted in the death of multiple workers and policemen. Similarly, in May 1894, the death of more than a dozen railway workers in their protest against wage cuts is another infamous event in the laborers’ struggle to gain a better social and economic deal. It was this event that led the Congress to legalize the first Monday of every September as a national “workingmen’s holiday”. While people still remember the sacrifices made by the laborers and workers, today people celebrate the day by firework displays, parades, and other similar public gatherings. Picnics and barbeques also make up a major part of the celebrations which take place in every part of the country.
