Hello everyone. On this auspicious day, I will talk about Labor Day, also known as International Workers Day, which is celebrated on May 1 of each year.
It is a great honor for me to have been chosen to deliver the speech to my esteemed teachers and my friends and classmates. I humbly ask for your attention and apologize for any mistake you may make if necessary. Do not hesitate to correct me where I am wrong. I am open to suggestions.
Before talking about this Labor Day theme, it would be unfair for me if I did not explain everything about the history of this day. For millions of workers worldwide, May 1 is their day. At the end of the 19th century, American unions were tired of working in unsafe conditions and with low wages.
After this in 1884, the Federation of Organized Trade Unions and Trade Unions arrived in Chicago and maintained certain demands, including an 8-hour workday.
Finally, on May 1, 1886, more than 300,000 American workers went on strike. 3 days later, they organized in a market to protest and, while protesting, riots broke out between the workers and the police.
That he oppressed the population so openly that this could be clearly seen in the police reaction that day by throwing live bombs into the protest field in broad daylight.
Several people died in the bomb blast. Since the entire incident took place in Haymarket Square, today it is known as the Haymarket Massacre. Since that day, May 1 is known as International Workers Day or International Labor Day.
However, many countries have their own business days with a different story behind the day. In India, Labor Day is celebrated on May 1 and is usually a holiday.
Important institutions, including schools, colleges and government offices, are closed this day to commemorate the contribution of workers in our society.
Freedom is generally celebrated to recognize the importance of the lower-level working class program of our society that has no white collar work. In general, these are the people whom society despises and who everyone disapproves of everywhere.
It’s not fair. First, the problem lies in the formation of human society and human psychology plays a very important role here. Social communities formed by extremely class and hierarchical human beings.
In this scenario of extreme stereotypes, it is very obvious that the workers and workers I was seeing were people from the lowest strata of society.
But is this really the case? Do these people deserve to be frowned upon? The answer is an absolute no. These people, mostly working class, are an extremely essential workforce for the development of a progressive society. No matter the size of the plans we sketch in our minds and on paper and pencil, it is these workers who make our thoughts come true.
Let me explain this to you using a rather humorous incident. In 1962, the president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, visited the NASA Space Research Center. During his visit to all the locals, he met a janitor, a broom in his hand, that passed in front of him. He asked what he was doing there.
And the janitor quickly replied that he was helping to put a man on the moon. This may seem like a very insignificant incident, but it reveals a lot about the importance of workers, especially working class workers, in our daily lives.
Most of the people that the janitor was just one person cleaned the place, but if you look at it from a broader perspective, we will discover that he was also responsible, no matter how small his role, is to put Neil Armstrong on the Moon. There is a great life lesson that we can learn from this incident.
No matter what the role of the business, large or small, is always a crucial part of the entire system. Without it, the system may fail.
The situation is similar to a deck of cards when placed on top of another to form a castle. No matter how a card is placed or where it is placed, it even breaks with a small movement of any card that destroys the entire structure.
