Google Doodle celebrates International Workers' Day 2018

Tuesday is May 1, otherwise known as Labor Day or International Workers' Day, and Google is marking the occasion with a Doodle featuring the tools of various trades - from hardhats and shovels to mixing bowls, books and laboratory beakers.
He advised the labour movement not to only enquire after what workers could get from the government but also what they could do to further contribute to support the government in making a difference in the lives of the people. A labour union movement in the U.S. arose from the exploitation and demanded proper wages, paid leaves and breaks for the workforce, which highlighted the importance of the labourers in the functioning of industries.
Though his party died out in the next two years, the country has continued to celebrate May Day as a means to honour the effort put in by workers. But the date was later proposed as one to recognize workers' rights by the Second International, a coalition of socialist and Marxist parties and labor groups founded in Paris, amid a worldwide push for better working conditions and heightened class consciousness.
As the country moves toward another election year, Ambode said it was imperative for the labour movement to see itself as a constructive partner of government in ensuring peace and harmony before, during, and after the conduct of the 2019 general elections.
Labour Day is also known as the International Workers' Day and has its origins in the late 19th century workers movement and the emergence of powerful trade unions. Celebrations were held at the Triplicane Beach and also at the beach opposite Madras High Court. However, the question that remains unanswered is when India will attend to the remaining four conventions namely the Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize Convention, the Right to Organize and Collective Bargaining Convention, the Minimum Age Convention and the Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention.
India's working population is a significant contributor to the country's economy. Out of this 33.69 crore were rural workers and 13.72 crores were urban workers. More than 80 countries across the world observe the day as a national holiday.
She also desired justifiable remuneration and social security for the workers for establishment of the appropriate industrial relations, as reported in the Kathmandu Post. However, these benefits are still not available to workers in the informal sector even today. This is in consonance with the government's narrative of "Make in India", focus on skill development, push for entrepreneurship, etc.
How do you plan to show gratitude to your workforce?
This day is dedicated to all those workers who work very hard whole year. Share it with us in comments.
