Saskatchewan People Set to Celebrate Labour Day
On Monday, September 2, people across Saskatchewan, from many backgrounds and traditions, spanning several generations, and representing a variety of occupations and professions, will gather together to celebrate Labour Day. First observed as a Canadian national holiday in 1894, Labour Day is now observed in dozens of countries across the globe every year. Originally a day to commemorate working people’s struggle for an eight-hour work day, Labour Day has become an important celebration of the contributions working people continue to make to our way of life.
