In 1886, the Congress of the American Federation of Labor passed a resolution declaring that the Labor Day for all workers was eight hours, beginning May 1st, 1886, in the city of Chicago. The Congress chose May 1st because it marks the start of the accounting year in US factories and enterprises. Additionally, new contracts between employers and employees are signed during this time. Therefore, International Labor Day on May 1st not only means to praise the labor force and fight for peace but also presents the spirit of democracy and progress in society.
