View count: 488

Today  in  dozens of countries in the World  is a holiday:  people  are  celebrating  the  day of  Work  and  Workers.  The  history  of  the  holiday  is  connected  with  1890  year,  when  May 1st  was  celebrated  as  an  international  day  of  Work and  Workers  for  the  first  time.

Before the  official   establishment of  the  holiday:  on  May  1st,  1886  workers' unrest  were  in one  of  the  large industrial  cities  in  the USA,  Chicago.  People,  who  came  out  for a  strike,  demanded  to make  the  working day  8 hours.  The  strike  was  over  with  clashes with  the Police.   The  most  participants of  the  unrest  were  arrested,  the  organizers  were  sentenced to death.

In  1889  the  2nd International Congress in Paris  decided  to  organize  a  strike  every  year  on May 1st  in the  memory  of  Chicago's  workers.

At  the  beginning  of the  20th  century  the  revolutionary movement  moved  to  Russia  and  already  during  the  Soviet  Unions  years  May 1st  was  celebrated  with great fanfare:   accompanied by the traditional Parade.

Today  the  Independent Republic of Armenia,  as  many  countries  in the  World,  is  celebrating  the  Workers'  holiday:  with    proud consciousness  that  only  people  who  work can  feel sterling,  that  the   work  is the pledge   of  human improvement and development, victory  of  creativity and  spirit.

Dear  members  of ASUE,  ASUE  Media  and  Public  Relations  Division congratulates  You,  wishes  power  and  energy  to  feel  the delight  of  work  as  long as  possible.
