It’s Labour Day in Australia,


It’s Labour Day in Australia, also known as Eight Hours Day. This was not obtained without labour unions. Labour unions began in England, but not in cities. They began in Dorset in rural England in 1833. In England and Australia (later in 1891) magistrates sent union leaders to prison for swearing a secret oath. I made a video about labour unions at Barcaldine in Queensland. But not before I’d had lunch at the Shakespeare Hotel.
