There are some commemorative days in the life of every man and nation. For instance, the 21st of February is a red-letter day for remembering the incomparable sacrifice of our Language Martyrs. But May day is not commemorative for the people of a particular nation. It is equally important for the hard-working people of all the nations in the world.
The 1st of May is recognized by the countries of the world as International Worker's Day. It commemorates the historic struggle of the toiling people. It was the first May of 1886 that the workers in the city of Chicago revolted against the suppression, oppression and exploitation of the capitalists, factory owners. In 1886 many workers called for strikes and staged demonstrations to fulfill their demand for minimum wage, safety laws and eight hour working days in Chicago, America.
Police fired on a crowd of strikers at McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, Chicago on May 3, 1886. Consequently, one striker was killed, five or six others were seriously wounded and an undetermined number of strikers were injured.
Today the workers are enjoying all the privileges and facilities like a minimum wage, safety laws and eight-hour workday which are due to the sacrifice of the workers in 1886. Since then this day is observed as worker's day in the United States. Then it is declared as International Worker's Day by the United Nations.
Now the Day is observed by the countries of the world. People in factories have worked very long shifts, lasting up to fourteen or even more hours a day from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Both Labour Unions and unorganized workers were inspired by a new movement calling for an eight-hour day in the 1886s.
The event of May Day 1886 is a milestone in the history of working-class people. They learn from this day that they will continue to be exploited until they stand up and speak out to gain better working conditions, better pay and better lives. Let May Day and its glory survive all over the world.
