Celebrating Workers’ Day in the Lockdown

. . .holiday that doesn’t feel like a holiday

The 1st of May of every year is officially recognized as a holiday for government workers and employees of certain private companies whose management granted the day off to celebrate Worker’s Day.

The same applies to Nigeria where workers greatly appreciate the 24-hours break they get from work, especially when it comes in the middle of the week or on a Friday.

Established on May 1st, 1890 after the International Congress of Socialist Parties in Europe on July 14th, 1889 proclaimed the first of every May as “Workers Day of International Unity and Solidarity”, the Worker’s day holiday has come a long way with a long history attached.

However, this year’s Worker’s day comes to us with no excitement as workers simply aren’t in the holiday mood.

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak that has forced governments to temporarily shut down economies, increase spendings on health and security, and enforced the ‘Stay At Home’ rule, workers are feeling less enthusiastic to spend one more day on holiday. Everyone wants to return to work as soon as possible, making the famous May Day look like something we would rather scrap off the calenders.

Health workers during the lockdown

Those in the frontline of our battle against the pandemic might have a different feeling. Health workers, security personals and those offering essential services might not get the day off today as their services are of extreme importance to everyone at this period. They are the ones truly in need of 2020’s May Day.

Twitter and Facebook have been exploding with compliments and appreciation of workers in these lines and it is only necessary we show more of these appreciations. We simply cannot do without our health workers and other essential service providers at this moment.

So here we are, celebrating a holiday that doesn’t feel like a holiday. Our only hope is to swiftly overcome the disease that has paralyzed the world this long so that when next we celebrate May Day, everyone can look back to 2020 and appreciate the importance of man’s service to man.

As part of our appreciation of workers, VTpass remains committed to providing top-notch services as regards stress-free, convenient bills payment, so you can focus on doing things that really matter to you.
