Twilight News / The Kurdistan Regional Government announced the suspension of official working hours on Wednesday.
“On the occasion of World Labor Day, we extend the warmest congratulations and blessings to the working class of workers in Kurdistan, Iraq and the world, hoping to realize their demands, hopes and entitlements,” government spokesman Sven Dzai said in a statement.
He added that “On this occasion we declare to the dear citizens in the Kurdistan region that on Wednesday, 2019/5/1 will be an official holiday in all departments and institutions of the Kurdistan Regional Government.”
Wednesday marks the International Workers’ Day, which dates from the 19th century to the United States, Canada and Australia. Before the announcement of this day in years, Chicago in the 19th century was engaged in labor disputes to reduce working hours in Hamilton, especially in the movement known as the eight-hour movement.
