Labor Day or Labour Day is an annual holiday celebrated all over the world on different days to celebrate the achievements of workers.
Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers.

This day celebrates the economic and social achievements of workers.
This day is different from the workers’ holiday held on May 1 which is known as International Workers’ Day or May Day. In some countries that day itself is celebrated as Labour Day. For example India.
