Labour Day in US

May 06, 2013

WHILE being enlightened by Pervez Rahim about  Labour Day (May 1), I would like to point out that May 1 is not observed in the US as Labour Day and neither is it a holiday. Labor (this is how they spell it) Day is observed at the end of summer.

May 1 passes by without any public or government recognition. Indeed most people are unaware of its significance. Perhaps you or one of your illustrious readers or the US embassy can comment on this anomaly.
