This Labour Day, Nepali President wishes for prosperity

Like every year, the first day of May is celebrated as International Labour Day. It features a collection of a myriad instruments and tools used by workers in various professions, from medicine to carpentry.

We might all disagree on International Workers' Day, but as far as May Day itself, it's easy to bypass the political implications of that. In some countries, the particular day is celebrated on a separate day, but the significance remains the same.

But May Day also coincides with International Workers' Day, which is tied up in the history of unions, and of the fight for the improvement of workers' rights. The day coincides with "Maharashtra Day" and "Gujarat Day' when the two states attained statehood after the erstwhile Bombay state was divided on the basis of languages spoken by the people".

Rallies, festivals and even some counter-demonstrations are planned across the US, from Seattle to Miami to New York City.

Xi, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks in a reply letter to national model workers who are studying at the China University of Labor Relations.

The celebrations should move beyond the routine shows and parades to provide a platform for reflections on labour issues with a view to resolving the endemic challenges.

The day is marked with different rallies and seminars to highlight the fundamental and basic rights of workers. Also known as "May Day", the day is celebrated in honour of millions of labourers who toil everyday to keep the things going smoothly.

Meanwhile, thousands of other people were participating in officially-allowed May 1 events in the Istanbul district of Maltepe at a vast meeting area, with similar gatherings formed across the country, including the capital Ankara and Turkey's third largest city of Izmir.

The department has now advised entrepreneurs to pay wages fixed by the district labour officers. The ITUC Global Rights Index depicts the world's worst countries for workers by rating 139 countries on a scale from 1-5 based on the degree of respect for workers' right.
