Labor Day is celebrated on this date to commemorate the proletariat’s struggles for centuries and to celebrate their bravery in demanding better working conditions.

On April 8, 1908, the Philippine Assembly passed a law declaring the first day of May as Labor Day.

This holiday is also about celebrating the contributions that people have made to our society, country, and even to the rest of the world. It’s about honoring the importance of work and progress.

Labor Day is a national holiday in the Philippines. It is a day to honor workers’ contributions to society and the economy. The first Labor Day celebration was held on May 1, 1903, in Plaza Moriones, Tondo to Malacanang. Thousands of people marched and protested against capitalism and imperialism, led by the Union Obrera Democratica de Filipinas, the country’s first trade union federation.

Thanks to people’s hard work and dedication to fight for our rights! This event became known as one of the first protests in the streets of Manila, as more than 10,000 people protested against the exploitation and poor treatment of workers.

Labor Day, or Araw ng Manggagawa, has been celebrated in the Philippines for a long time, and it is commemorated not just with parades and other festivities but also with rallies and marches by workers.

The event underscores the fact that the country’s workers have proven to be valuable partners in the government’s efforts to achieve economic growth and constructive social change.

So, let us all use this day to celebrate how far we have come as a nation and how much further we can go together if we keep working hard. 

And in honor of this holiday, ROC.PH is closed today, May 01, 2022. Enjoy this day and catch up with your family and friends! We will be back the next business day, May 02, 2022. See you!
