Labour Day 2020 and 2021

Argentina observes 1 May as Labour Day, a public holiday and off-work day that seeks to draw attention to the contributions and rights of Argentina’s work force as well as to give them a much-anticipated break.

Labour unions often put on protests and rallies in Argentinian cities on 1 May. People may meet at private homes, in their place of employment to listen to presentations on workers’ rights.

Workers Day has been kept up in Argentina since 1890, originally by socialist-controlled trade unions, but it wasn’t an official holiday until 1930. And since the 1940’s and 1950’s, it has grown in importance and popularity.
