Labour day is a public holiday for schools and many businesses and including some government offices. In the 19th century new zealand workers tried to claim the rights for a 8 hour working day. In 1840 Samuel Parnell fought for Wellingtons right for the 8 hour day and won. The first that labour day was celebrated was in 1890 October 28th.

The first official Labour day was in Wednesday October 1990. But they have moved the day to the 4th of monday and has remained on this day ever since.  There are also many different Labour celebrations. America celebrates it to but they do it for the workers achievements.
