Labor Day is commemorated internationally on May 1. For this reason, the day is also known as May Day. It is a national holiday in more than 80 countries – including Guyana and Brazil – during which workers and their labor unions organize street demonstrations and marches.
In the United States, Labor Day is not celebrated until the first Monday in September (3 September 2012). Nevertheless, on Tuesday, 1 May 2012, the OCCUPY Movement has organized an Occupy May Day – General Strike.
No work – no school – no shopping – no banking – no trading.
