Labour Day Weekend!

September 01, 2023

Labour Day Weekend!


Labour Day takes place on the first Monday of September. This tradition started in 1894, which was believe to have been inspired by the first worker's rallies of the Victorian Era. One of the event that helped start the Labour Day movement was the Nine Hour movement from 1872, when workers demanded shorter working hours. They were expected to work 12 or more hours per day. Even though they were unsuccessful, this movement helped build the labour union we know today!
