International Workers Day

A debt of honor

The International Workers Day is a day to laud the countless achievements of our working class who play a prime role in our society. Each year Labor Day is commemorated on May 1, with a public holiday. All around the globe, workers have been positively contributing towards the welfare of their country. It is their unwavering hard work that has paved the path towards continual prosperity. Therefore, they definitely deserve a break to free themselves from exhaustion and worries of work.

Let’s pay homage

All the workers belonging to different professions or occupations whether they are skilled or unskilled, plodders or doctors, engineers or office boys, sweepers or teachers, pilots or miners, soldiers or janitors, mechanics or lawyers deserve the same level of respect. The effort that they put in their work whether it is manual or intellectual cannot be undermined on the basis of their qualification, status or level of hierarchy. At the same time this day condemns the escalating issue of child labor which is mostly prevalent in third world countries. Such unlawful acts have shattered the dreams of thousands of talented gems. Labor Day also sheds light on the difficulties that many workers face such as long working hours, poor working conditions and low salaries. Many on site workers or those working at the manufacturing plants have expressed such grievances. On the very opposite end, some tech workers continue to enjoy the privileges of high salaries and fringe benefits.

The tech side

From a technological perspective, labor’s day holds much significance. The sky rocketing advancement in technology has resulted in the automation of many tasks which has both a good side and a bad side as this has impacted the labor market in several ways. Machines, especially in the manufacturing and transportation sector have replaced the workforce. According to an estimation, nearly 400 million jobs will be lost by 2030 as a result of automation and 800 million will be automated. There has been a huge reduction in jobs, so manual labor is no longer needed. However, the demand for skilled workers in the field of cyber security, quality assurance, data analytics, network engineering, and software development has increased. This has also revealed that workers are getting more technologically savvy and diverse in terms of skills. 

Every soul matters, so make them smile!

All those who have sweated under the sun or racked their brains in their workspace to earn a living will always be revered today and forever. The efforts of every individual worker will never go in vain. On this labor’s day, don’t forget to speak up for those who are being underpaid and are demanding fair and equitable working conditions. Be the first one to present a bouquet of flowers to those who really deserve it.
