One day, one rhyme- Day 391 'Australia Day'

Here in Australia there is one special day
When we lay back, chill out, and proudly display
Our love of an island so big, brown and free,
A country that’s home to both you and to me.
With wide sweeping beaches and tall mountain peaks;
Where bushland meets rivers that flow into creeks;
Where you’ll hear thunder, see lightning, drought and flood
Where an ‘Aussie-ness’ seems to run in our blood.
So whether you’re native, or whether you’re not
It’s almost certain to be sunny and hot
So chuck on your sunnies and try to keep cool
And if you can find one, then jump in a pool.
Celebrate with pavlova and Vegemite
(Though not both together, that’d be a fright!)
Be glad of this great land surrounded by foam
The land that we love and the one we call home.

NATIONAL LABOUR DAY

The International Labour Day movement came out of the struggle to free workers from extreme conditions of repression, exploitation and racism which generally existed in the late nineteenth century. Since 1890 May 1 has been reserved by many countries as the day to officially honour the Labor movement. 

However some countries chose different days in May to celebrate it, in Jamaica Labour Day is celebrated on May 23rd of each year. In 1961, a Bill in Parliament abolished the public holiday, Empire Day. Empire Day was the birthday of Queen Victoria of England the Monarch attributed with abolishing slavery, her birthday was a public holiday celebrated May 24th. The new bill in parliament, however designated May 23rd as Labour Day, the day which marks the anniversary of the working class movement which began in Jamaica in 1938.

In 1972, then Prime Minister, Michael Manley, changed the focus to voluntarism by emphasizing the importance of labour to the development of Jamaica.

This year, National Labour Day will be observed on Monday May 25 and not May 23.  The Holidays (General Public) Act of 1895 (last amended in 1962), states that “the 23rd May (or in case the 23rd day of May falls on Saturday or Sunday, then the following Monday) shall be known as “National Labour Day”. National Labour Day 2015 will be observed under the theme, “Labour of Love, Nurturing Our Children”.

Also- a great big fuck you to the multiple customers who came in at 2 mins to 5pm on a public holiday, ignored me when I politely informed them that we were closed, spent 15 minutes just looking around, proceeded to not buy anything and then just left without apologising for keeping me and my coworker behind for those 15mins for which we were not paid. Like, really. Cheers guys.

I’m not sure where you’re from but you’re supposed to be paid for every single minute you work here in the states. I don’t think that differs state to state. -Abby
