To enjoy such a holiday workers and their families can have a day off from their tiring work hours. All workers, schools and government jobs get the day off as it is a national holiday.


This day came to be when the United States government tried to extend the hours of a regular work day to 8 and there were riots that broke out around the country. Learning from their mistakes the U.S and many other countries made a holiday for the hard workers that support the country.
