The Labour Day
September 1st - The Labour Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of Canadian workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.
Workers marching today in the last Labour Day parades of this century are celebrating the gains they've made over the last 100 years. But it's also time, some say, to look at what's been lost in the 1990s, and for the labour movement to come together to speak with a stronger voice to protect workers.
