Who came up with the 8-hour workday?
You may not know this, but May 1st is known as Labour Day or International Worker’s Day and is marked with a public holiday in over 80 countries, including Latvia. Most countries celebrate on or about May 1st because in 1884 the American Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions demanded an eight-hour workday, to come in effect as of May 1, 1886. Europeans agreed!
