International Labor Day 2022: According to research by the International Labor Organization (ILO), there is more than double the difference between developed and developing countries on the standard of working more than 48 hours a week.
International Labor Day 2022: Every year on 1 May, it is celebrated as Labor Day all over the world. This day is also known as Labor Day, Labor Day, May Day etc. The purpose of celebrating Labor Day is to remember the struggle and sacrifices of the workers all over the world. On May 1, 1886, the movement started in America, after which it was decided that every worker should be made to work only 8 hours a day. So let us know how close or how far are you to your colleagues around the world according to the working hours?
According to Convention No. 1 of the International Labor Standard (1919) about 103 years ago, any person in the world should work only 48 hours. But even today, a third of the world's workforce still works more than 48 hours per week. Working hours have reduced in the developed countries of the world, but still a large part of the world has to devote a lot of its time to earn livelihood.
If this figure is divided by region in the world, then Eastern Europe is the number one. Here only 5 percent of the workforce works for more than 48 hours. At the same time, the South Asia region with India and neighboring countries is the weakest on this scale. About 55 percent of the population here works more than 48 hours.
According to research by the International Labor Organization (ILO), there is more than double the difference between developed and developing countries on the standard of working more than 48 hours a week. Where in developed countries only more than 15.3 percent of the population works more than 48 hours a week. At the same time, about 40.5% of the population of developing countries have to work more.
If we talk about BRICS countries, then all the fellow countries of India are better than India on this standard. Where in Brazil and Russia work only 35 and 38 hours respectively. At the same time, China (46.61) and South Africa (46.81) are also in a better position than India (47.86).
As we learned in the research of ILO that the difference in working hours between developed countries and developing countries is very high. In such a situation, the working hours in a week are less than 35 in countries like Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, America, UK, France, Italy etc. That is, developed countries get about 10 hours more than Indians.
