Let’s Go Beyond Mere Speeches and Work Towards Implementing Tangible Solutions for Workers’ Welfare

Akhter Abas:

May 1st marks International Workers’ Day, a celebration of the working class and their invaluable contributions to society. The day commemorates the 1886 Haymarket Affair in Chicago, where workers fought for an eight-hour workday, paving the way for labor rights.

As we acknowledge the significance of workers in building our nation’s infrastructure, development, and economy, it’s crucial to recognize their struggles and ensure their welfare. The working class is the backbone of our society, and their rights must be protected.

In India, various departments and schemes aim to support workers, but many remain unaware or face bureaucratic hurdles in accessing these benefits. The government must streamline processes and ensure that workers can access support without wasting time, enabling them to improve their standard of living.

It’s our collective responsibility to appreciate the importance of workers and hold the government accountable for their welfare. We must go beyond mere speeches and programs on Labour Day and work towards implementing tangible solutions.

Let’s respect the workers who drive our nation’s progress and strive for a better quality of life for them and their families. Only then can we truly celebrate the spirit of Labour Day.
