Labor Day in China and the USA

Labor Day in China is International Workers’ Day celebrated May 1st. and known as Lao Dong Jie. Until 2008, this holiday was celebrated for seven days, however the Chinese government later decided to reduce the number of public holidays to three in favor of other traditional Chinese holidays.

The history of International Workers' Day in China started in 1919, when the intelligentsia initiated insurgencies in Shanghai. Later, in 1920, Beijing and Shanghai held the first-ever demonstration in honor of all workers. Officially, this holiday was established and approved by the Chinese government in 1949. During the Chinese “cultural revolution” May Day was considered the most important holiday in the country. Huge political demonstrations across China were organized to celebrate workers. However, today in China it is a cheerful family holiday like others in which the Chinese go to the country, meet friends, give family dinners and attend cultural events in theaters and exhibitions. Chinese city streets hold demonstrations and performances.


American Labor Day

Labor Day is a federal holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor the American labor movement and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. Before it was a federal holiday, Labor Day was recognized by labor activists and individual states. New York was the first state to introduce a bill and the first Labor Day parade was held September 5, 1882 in New York City. 

International Workers’ Day in the USA 

May 1st was chosen to be International Workers' Day to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago. In that year beginning on 1 May, there was a general strike for an eight-hour workday. International Workers’ Day is celebrated on May 1st in over 60 countries.
