The Origin of Labor Day

The State Council of the Central People's Government of China made a decision in December 1949 to determine May 1 as Labor Day.
After 1989, the State Council basically commended the national model workers and advanced workers every five years, about 3000 people each time. On the eve of May Day in 1921, workers learned to sing the May Day Memorial Song at the Changxindian Labor tutorial School founded by Deng Zhongxia, a member of the communist group in Beijing. This majestic and powerful song was jointly created by the faculty of Changxindian Labor Practice School and the progressive students of Peking University. Although the struggle on May 1, 1886 was suppressed, the continuous struggle of the working class in various countries finally won the "eight-hour work system" and "May Day".
This festival will always accompany workers all over the world and become the guarantee of workers' rights and interests. Through struggle, with a tenacious, heroic and unyielding spirit of struggle, laborers have won their legitimate rights and interests, which is a historic progress of human civilization and democracy.
