Starting in the 19th century, with the labour movements and trade union growing, several days were selected by the trade unionists as a day for celebrating labour.

In the past, Labour Day was marked by protests and demonstrations across the countries that still had unfair laws regarding workers’ rights. However, today it is a celebration of the working class and how far labour laws, equality, and other similar factors have come.
