The origin of the Labor Day holiday originated from the general strike of workers in the city of Chicago in 1886. International Labor Day, also known as “May Day” and “International Demonstration Day”, is a national holiday in more than 80 countries around the world, and is set on May 1 every year. It is a holiday shared by working people all over the world. In July 1889, the Second International, led by Engels, held a congress in Paris.The meeting passed a resolution to provide for a march of international workers on May 1, 1890, and decided to make May 1 the day of the International Labor Day. The Chinese people’s celebration of May Day can be traced back to 1918. That year, some revolutionary intellectuals in Shanghai, Suzhou, and other places to the masses to distribute (May Day) leaflets.On May 1, 1920, workers in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other cities took to the streets to hold a huge parade and rally. The Government Administration Council of the Chinese People’s Government made a decision in December 1949 to designate May 1 as Labor Day. After 1989, The State Council basically awarded national model workers and advanced workers once every five years, with about 3,000 people awarded each time.

The meaning of Labor Day is that workers through the struggle, with the tenacious, brave and unyielding spirit of struggle, to fight for their legitimate rights and interests, is the historical progress of human civilization and democracy, which is the essence of the May Day Labor Day.
