The federal government of Pakistan has announced that May 1, which falls on Monday, will be a gazetted holiday to celebrate World Labour Day. This means that all government and semi-government offices, as well as educational institutes, will remain closed in the federal capital on May 1.

The declaration will lead to a three-day consecutive holiday starting from Saturday and ending on Monday. World Labour Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, is celebrated annually on May 1 to honor the contribution of working people and commemorate the struggle of the labor force for better working conditions, working hours, and pay.

The day also serves as a reminder of the continuing efforts to safeguard the right of workers and promote equitable labor practices around the world. In Pakistan and many other countries, workers’ rights organizations and trade unions often hold rallies and events to raise awareness of labor issues and advocate for better working conditions and wages.
