LABOUR DAY - co to takiego

IP: *.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl 06.09.05, 09:35
Three current union battles were like gas in the tank at yesterday's Labour
Day parade, fuelling thousands of marchers and their cries for a secure future
for workers

to tylko sytat dla wyjaśnienia pytania - dlaczego własciwie w Ameryce obchodzi
się Labour Day? Zakładam że ma podobny cel co 1 Maja (tylko niech ktoś nie
KOMPROMITUJE SIĘ i nie wyjeżdża z komunizemem), w takim razie dlaczego nie 1
maja? Czy takie parady to wyjątek czy odbywają się zawsze?

      "Labor Day is a national legal holiday that is over 100 years old. Over the
      years, it has evolved from a purely labor union celebration into a
      general "last fling of summer" festival.
      It grew out of a celebration and parade in honor of the working class by the
      Knights of Labor in 1882 in New York. In 1884, the Knights held a large parade
      in New York City celebrating the working class. The parade was held on the
      first Monday in September. The Knights passed a resolution to hold all future
      parades on the same day, designated by them as Labor Day.

      The Socialist Party held a similar celebration of the working class on May 1.
      This date eventually became known as May Day, and was celebrated by Socialists
      and Communists in commemoration of the working man. In the U.S., the first
      Monday in September was selected to reject any identification with Communism. "

        czyli jak jest obchodzone (zwłaszcza te pochody), ale dzięki.

        Choć muszę dodać, że przeczytałem w Wikipedii informacje, że wywodzi się z
        Australii:
        -----
        The celebration of Labour Day has its origins in the eight hour day movement,
        which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight
        hours for rest. On 21 April 1856 Stonemasons and building workers on building
        sites around Melbourne, Australia, stopped work and marched from the University
        of Melbourne to Parliament House to achieve an eight hour day.
        ----
        i dotarło do USA przez Kanadę:
        ----------
        The origins of Labour Day in Canada can be traced back to a printer's revolt in
        1872 in Toronto, where labourers tried to establish a 54-hour work week. At that
        time, any union activity was considered illegal and the organizers were jailed,
        at the behest of George Brown (Canadian politician). Protest marches of over
        10,000 workers were formed in response, which eventually led to Prime Minister
        Sir John A. Macdonald repealing the anti-union laws and arranging the release of
        the organizers as well.

        The fight of the Toronto printers had a second, lasting legacy. The parades held
        in support of the Nine-Hour Movement and the printers' strike led to an annual
        celebration. In 1882 American labour leader Peter J. McGuire witnessed one of
        these labour festivals in Toronto. Returning to the United States, Peter McGuire
        along with the Knights of Labor organized a similar parade on September 5, 1882
        in New York City. In 1884 another parade was held, and the Knights passed
        resolutions to make this an annual event.
