Celebrating International Workers’ Day with Interdisciplinary Insights 

May 1st isn’t just about spring blooms and picnics; it is about honoring the backbone of our society – the workers. International Workers’ Day or Labor Day, celebrated in many countries around the world in May, dates back to the late 19th-century labor movement, commemorating both the historical and modern-day fight for fair labor practices and workers’ rights. As we honor the contributions of workers past and present, we would also like to emphasize the importance of ongoing scholarly inquiry into the challenges of our current global labor landscape.
