While facing a range of serious challenges – most notably the Covid-19 pandemic and the rapid escalation in the US’s campaign to encircle, contain and suppress China – the working people of China have continued to enjoy sustained improvement in their living standards. Income, life expectancy, average years of education, access to healthcare, pension coverage, dignified housing, access to culture – life is improving in all of these measures, thanks to China’s socialist democracy, the hard work of the Chinese people, and the dedicated leadership of the Communist Party of China.
The article below, originally published in Xinhua, reports President Xi Jinping’s May Day greetings to China’s working people.
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday extended festive greetings and best wishes to the country’s working people ahead of International Workers’ Day, which falls on May 1.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, sent the greetings and wishes on behalf of the CPC Central Committee.
Xi called on the working people to foster an ethos of work, foster respect for model workers, and promote quality workmanship.
He asked them to work diligently and boldly engage in innovation to make solid progress in advancing Chinese modernization, encouraging them to play a leading role on the new journey to build China into a stronger country and realize national rejuvenation.
Xi urged Party committees and governments at all levels to protect workers’ legitimate rights and interests, earnestly help them solve their problems and difficulties, and promote a social atmosphere in which work and working people are treated with reverence and great respect.
One thought on “Xi Jinping sends greetings on International Workers’ Day”
I am from Vancouver,Canada and i wanted to say that the first May Day activities in the USA were in Chicago in the late 1800s. People took to the streets and fought for better working conditions and more money. The People were brutally beaten by Police but the workers continued the struggle and in the end May Day became a Reality in Europe and most of the world.
In the USA where the first May Day Activities happened the workers Day instead of been May 1 was the first Monday in September instead. It shows the contempt the US Gov’t got for the working class. As usual the Canadian Gov’t did the same.
