On May the first workers everywhere will down tools to celebrate the efforts of activists and union representatives the world over to make the world a better place for those who work and their families and communities.

While May the first is marked to celebrate the start of the 40 hour working week in many countries the day has deeper roots with other countries still taking part in Christian and pagan rituals like the maypole (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day).

In China, since 2001, The international day of the worker was part of a longer holiday, commonly called a golden week.

Companies and workers would take seven days off, but would often have to work three extra days to make up for their ‘holiday.’

This changed this year as Beijing has tried to bring public holidays more in tune with traditional holidays like Qin Ming and the Moon Festival.
