Antigua and Barbuda observes Labour Day on the first Monday of May, not necessarily on the first day of May like most other countries do. This guarantees workers a long weekend to enjoy instead of just an isolated day off work.

May is warm and balmy in this tropical island paradise, and Labour Day Weekend is the perfect chance for families to head out to the local beaches, explore island wildlife reserves, or go fishing or boating offshore.
There are also usually some labour-related marches, parades, or protests. Many use the occasion of Labour Day to press for improved working conditions, higher salaries, more flexible schedules, and other workers’ rights. Political leaders are keen to horn in on the discussion, make promises, and give moving speeches.
