A lot of countries across the world celebrate Labor Day on May 1, which specifies the significant Haymarket affair.
In 1904, a conference called on trade unions to form rallies to demand an eight-hour workday standard. Therefore, the first day of May turned into a public holiday to commemorate this historical event.
Although most countries celebrate the International Workers’ Day on May 1, The United States and Canada have designated the first Monday in September as their Labor Day.
This year is on Sept 5, which marks the end of summer as well as the beginning of the back-to-school season.
Furthermore, the origin of Labor Day contains some controversy.
The first version is about Knights of Labor, one of the largest American labor organizations. On September 5, 1882, this crew held a parade in New York City supported by the Central Labor Union (CLU). After all, CLU’s secretary Matthew Maguire marked this day as an official holiday for the working class within the nation.
In another version, Peter J. McGuire, the vice president of the American Federation of Labor, declared this holiday. In 1882, he proposed to CLU that the workers need to take a break. He also suggested making the first Monday in September as Labor Day, which falls between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving.
On this day, the majority of people will take off from work, which becomes a perfect time for you to hangout with your friends, watch your favorite TV shows, have a barbecue party, or just relax at home to recharge yourself.

Additionally, this day not only offers us an opportunity to let things go, but it also connects to one of the significant events in history.
The origin of Pardon Day can be dated back to September 8, 1974. President Gerald Ford granted a pardon to ex-President Richard Nixon, who had been involved in the Watergate affair scandal.

Journalism, a form of investigation of different stories, helps us to be rooted in our community and the world.
Let’s go back to ancient Europe to learn about the history of journalism.
In 1556, Venice published the first monthly Notizie scritte (Written notices) with the ultimate meaning of the name being newspaper. These handwritten newsletters rapidly spread throughout most parts of Europe, especially in Italy.
By 1400, some businessmen started to put together important news events, which led to the idea of using a printing press for this material in Germany around 1600.
After 1600, the government in France and England began to officially print out newsletters to the public.
In America, under the protection of the First Amendment “freedom of speech and press,” journalism started to grow quickly after the Revolution. The press turned out as an essential part for political campaigns.
In the 19th century, newspapers began to appear in the Eastern U.S. Afterwards in the early 20th century, newspapers became more popular to the people. In the late 20th century, much of American journalism merged together as various media businesses.
With the advent of the 21st century and the development of the Internet, a lot of people started off looking through news articles online instead of reading newspapers.
Nowadays, a great number of skilled journalists have created adequate stories, videos, podcasts and photographs to serve the public interest.
Journalism plays a major role in citizenship, and we cannot live without it.
