May Day Message: PM Shehbaz Sharif hails Labourers, workers as central to economic growth

May Day – International Labour Day is being marked internationally on Monday.

In his message marking the day, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif hailed Labourers and the workers of the country as central to economic growth.

PM in his message said, “While we pay rich tributes to the working classes & celebrate their contributions today, the fact is that the disruption in global markets has led to a severe cost of living crisis. Together with the increase in commodity prices, working people find themselves under tremendous stress.”

“The edifice of material development that stands on the foundation of hard work will come crumbling if those who made it possible are excluded from its benefits. Fulfilling labour rights & making people shareholders in the system remains a fundamental challenge for the global economy,” PM Shehbaz Sharif added.


May Day or Labour Day is observed around the world on May 1 every year to express solidarity and honour the rights of the labour class.

The day celebrates the work and achievements of labourers across the globe and initiates steps for the provision of job protection to them against any exploitation.
