India and Belize may be separated by thousands of miles, but they share a common goal of honoring the hard work and dedication of their labor force on May 1.

In India, the May 1 Labor Day is known as “May Day” and is celebrated as a national holiday. It is a day to pay tribute to the contributions of laborers who have helped build the nation. Similarly, in Belize, May 1 is celebrated as a national holiday and is also known as “Labour Day.” The day is marked by parades, marches, and rallies to honor the achievements of workers and raise awareness of labor issues.

Both India and Belize recognize the importance of their labor force, and Labor Day is an opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate their contributions to society, the economy and building a better future.
