Today, the 1st of May marks the day we celebrate as International Workers’ Day or Labour Day dedicated to the working class across a majority of the world. The origin of this day can be traced back to the Haymarket affair at Chicago on 4 May 1886 when labour unions in the USA went on a strike to cap the work hours to 8 hours per day. Following a bomb blast during the strike, the police opened fire on the crowd resulting in the death of 4 of the demonstrators. Labour Day began as a day to commemorate the work and lives of these workers. By 1891, May Day came to be acknowledged as an annual international event. In fact, India saw its first Labour Day celebration on 1 May 1923 in Madras (Chennai) by the Labour Kisan Party of Hindustan. While our history is rife with exemplary people who have beaten all odds to achieve the impossible, this Labour Day we at KredX salute the silent fighters who support these exemplary people and who’ve made their mark through their tireless work and undying spirit. One such person is Sindhutai Sapkal, the “Mother of Orphans” to over 1400 children.Read More »
