Ist May was observed as Labor Day at Marwah Studios

Noida: “International Labor Day — also known as May Day or International Workers’ Day — celebrates the struggle, dedication and commitment of the working class and is an annual public holiday in several countries. While many of us know it as an extra off day at work, very few are aware of its origins,” informed Dr. Sandeep Marwah Ambassador of International Human Rights Organization affiliated to United Nations while talking to the young aspirants of media at Asian Academy of Film And Television.

“The genesis of this day is in the labor union movement in the United States in the 19th Century, when industrialists exploited the labor class and made them work at least 15 hours a day. The movement involved protests that delivered a strong blow to the cycle of exploitation and made eight-hour working days a reality,” added Dr. Marwah who is also patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Associations.
