Labour Day Bahamas
04-04 June
event image
Labour Day or Labor Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest.

The Bahamas is primarily known for being a popular tourist destination for foreigners around the world. What isn’t generally known is the effort that the native people had to go through to gain fair treatment during a time when tourism was just beginning. Grand efforts were made by natives to gain equal rights, and that included rights to a fair wage, equal opportunity for jobs, and the right to form unions. This culminated in the first Labour Day in 1962. The people of the Bahamas take time reflect on the efforts made by thousands of people in the 20th century to help bring equality and better labor standards to the country. Presentations of history regarding the Burma Road Riot and recognition of the efforts of men like Sir Randol Fawkes are made throughout the country.
