Why is May 1 Labor Day?
On May 1, 1886, a group of workers from the city of Chicago began a strike demanding an eight-hour work day.. Around half a million workers spoke out for four days throughout the country in more than 5,000 strike points.
Three years later, at a Congress in Paris where the Second International was being held—a workers’ organization made up of socialist and labor parties—May 1 was instituted as the International Workers Dayin memory of the extensive mobilization of Chicago in 1886 and the trade unionists executed in one of the crackdowns known as the Haymarket Riot.
In Argentina the date was celebrated for the first time in 1890. Since then, events and demonstrations have been held every year to commemorate the struggles and rights achieved by all working sectors.
