Labour Health & Hospitality

In the world Labour Power is the back bone of any economy.  It drives economic growth, a highly productive economy means that we are able to produce more goods or services with the same amount of resource or produce the same level of goods and services with less resources. Second, labour productivity affects everyone. For businesses, increased productivity brings higher profit and opportunity for more investment, for workers, increased productivity can translate to higher wages and better working conditions. And in the longer term, increased productivity is key to job creation and for the government, increased productivity results in higher tax revenues. Labor Day is declared as a public holiday which was celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend and it is considered the unofficial end of summer in the United States. Canada's Labour Day is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. More than 80 countries celebrate International Workers' Day on May 1st.But as I consider those educated societies are still less aware about their social security values and programs for the labour of their country.

International Worker’s Day, also known as Labour Day in some countries and often referred to as May Day, is a celebration of laborers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labour movement which occurs every year on May Day (1 May), an ancient European spring festival. During this day special advantages in the sense of special discount should be given to the ordinary man of the country.

This day in Pakistan is as celebrated in the memories of those people which were stand up for the rights in Chicago. Although their behavior towards management was so rude in the sense of their protection they made several attacks on police to show their power of community of labour. But the actual power of society they given a lesson to them by shooting them although it was an accident and labour considered innocent people of society. In any society a social policy must procure in the favor of labour. But fortunately or unfortunately less educated people are less aware about this typical policy. They cannot be the beneficiary to enjoy the policy terms in their favor. 

The date of May 1 (an ancient European folk holiday known as May Day) emerged in 1886 as an alternative holiday for the celebration of labor, later becoming known as International Workers' Day. The date had its origins at the 1885 convention of the American Federation of Labor, which passed a resolution calling for adoption of the eight hour day effective May 1, 1886. While negotiation was envisioned for achievement of the shortened work day, use of the strike to enforce this demand was recognized, with May 1 advocated as a date for coordinated strike action. The proximity of the date to the bloody Haymarket affair of May 4, 1886, further accentuated May First's radical reputation. There was disagreement among labor unions at this time about when a holiday celebrating workers should be, with some advocating for continued emphasis of the September march-and-picnic date while others sought the designation of the more politically-charged date of May 1. Conservative Democratic President Grover Cleveland was one of those concerned that a labor holiday on May 1 would tend to become a commemoration of the Haymarket Affair and in 1887, he publicly supported the September Labor Day holiday as a less inflammatory alternative. The date was formally adopted as a United States federal holiday in 1894. In Pakistan need of the hour is to procure the labours and given their best advantages but when some labour become a party against the industrialist and blackmail them to enhance the rates of the manufacturing of goods in the sense of labour then industries think about to keep those person in his factory which are purely honest and modest and not clever to molest the business of that industrialist in spite of this it is moral duty of social security department and labour department to promote their program to secure the values and importance of labour class. Although they have big hospitals and a lot of things to be given the labour class but less aware labour don’t know how to achieve these facilities accordingly. In this regard industrialist think upon not to register them in to social security or any kind of labour law which is purely beneficiary for the labour. In a second way labour don’t work accordingly in a one unit, they have bad habit to go around to others unit to keep watching other people and to keep borrowing the money to the industrialist for their personal use. Government of Pakistan should produce not even the policy but good opportunities in real meaning for the labour class of society in which they can enjoy the best facilitation of health or hospitality in any hospital.

According to my analysis for these departments they really don’t want to bring a better change for the labour class, although in budget a certain big amount have been allocated to them but it is very rare to see any promo about to achieve good facilitation for the labour class from these departments. Government of Pakistan should restrict them to arrange such programs to aware the positive awareness to use the fixed money into the budget for the labour class of Pakistani society. And as well as the accountability of said department is necessity to bring a better change for society. In every budget policy maker try their best to emboss several kind of taxes upon the nation specially for those items which are in very common use by any common person of the country, Although a common man must be given the relief to purchase such these things for their living hood. Otherwise the accident like Chicago steel mill can make a revival. Although Pakistan is still in a very crucial political instability. People are not satisfied with the law n order situation. They wish to live in Pakistan peacefully.
