For most people, Labour Day is an opportunity to rest and relax with family and friends. There are no major festivities on Labour Day, so it is simply a day off from work to spend at home, the malls, or out in nature.

A small minority, however, will spend the day protesting, marching, and demanding new workers’ rights.
