In 1886 the North American labor movement called for an eight-hour general strike on May 1st. There were then mass strikes and demonstrations. That is the origin of May 1st as Labor Day.
What do they know about it in Switzerland? And what do the Swiss think of May 1st? swissinfo.ch took to the streets in Lausanne and asked the population.
Not all celebrate May 1st
In Switzerland, by the way, only August 1st is regulated nationwide. Other public holidays, such as May 1st, are organized by the cantons: In the cantons of Basel-Landschaft, Basel-Stadt, Jura, Neuchâtel and Zurich, Labor Day is a legally recognized public holiday that is equal to Sundays. Work is also on hold in Schaffhausen, Thurgau and Ticino.
Solothurn, Freiburg and St. Gallen grant public service employees half a day off. In other cantons such as Bern, Lucerne and Schwyz, May 1st is a regular working day.
