Quote of the day

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller


International Labour Day (May Day), May 1

International Workers' Day, also known as Labour Day but also referred to as May Day in most countries is a celebration of laborers and workers in our society. 1 May was chosen to be International Workers' Day to commemorate the 1886 Haymarket affair in Chicago. In that year beginning on 1 May, there was a general strike for the eight-hour workday.  It became a yearly commemoration, inspiring American workers to have their first stoppage. Mayday is a public holiday, so don't forget to relax, have fun and unwind.

Happy International Labour day, what do you do for a living? comment below.


  1. Fraternal greetings.

    Nowadays I’m retired, so I don’t actually do anything for a living anymore. However, up to five years ago, I worked in the NHS breast and cervical screening programme on the admin side. Lasting for 22 years it was the longest job I ever held, and took up over half of my working life.

  2. Working with my hands in unison with my brain manufacturing goods, useful for some members of the community, otherwise the company I am working for won’t be able paying my wage.

    A tough market these days, especially in a developed country like Australia, where a lot of manual jobs for the sake of profits for the employers or business owners have been shifted to slave labour nations.

    Our market are increasingly highly specialized projects, challenging and requiring new solutions to onsite demands. Which is making it a rewarding occupation, not completing the same tasks, day in, day out, all the time.

    Unfortunately industrial robots are getting smarter every day, removing us humans from such worksites one day. My career in that field will soon be over on reasons of age, although what incentive is there for a young person wanting to build a career from an apprenticeship upwards ?

  3. Nothing, I am disabled and am currently unemployed.

    With Covid-19 and Brexit affecting the U.K. economy I doubt I’ll get another job.
