Labour Day 2021, 2022 and 2023 in Albania

Labour Day in Albania is celebrated every 1 May, as it is in much of the rest of the world. This is a holiday to celebrate the contributions of workers to the economy and society, and also a time to highlight where progress still needs to be made towards fair and safe working conditions.

This is a relatively minor holiday in Albania for most people but one they enjoy nonetheless. A few people may attend labour rallies or parades in Albania for Labour Day, but most people focus on family, fun, and food.

Unemployment has been a nagging problem in Albania for some time, with labour force participation rates hovering around 60 to 70 percent. And there is certainly a lot of poverty. However, the government has and enforces serious worker protection statutes that guard against child labour, discrimination, and poor working conditions. Labour Day is often a time when politicians will introduce new proposals to further bolster workers’ rights.
