This differs from most nations that observe Labour Day on 1 May and from various Australian states and territories that observe Labour Day in either March, October or May.
In the past, a huge phosphate mine on Christmas Island employed much of the population. Today, many are involved in the tourist and recreation industries. Traditional farming and fishing also play a part in the local economy. Labour Day is the day when workers of all walks of life are honoured for their contributions to the community and to their own families.
