On May 1st, International Labour Day today, political leaders took to Twitter to wish the workers and labourers of the country. On workers’ day, they saluted their hard work and the toil they do every day for a prosperous nation.
Labour Day or May Day honours the hard work of workers across the world and celebrate their achievements. It is an annual public holiday in many countries. Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement in the United States in the 19th century when the industrialists used to exploit the labour class and made them work up to 15 hours a day.
On this special day, a video released from Puthiya Thalaimurai winning hearts and breaking it at the same time. The video shows a young lad introducing himself as Loganathan. He is an engineering graduate who completed Mechanical Engineering in 1st class. Having a younger brother as sibling, Loganathan works as coolie for a living.
The 26 year old youth seen explaining about the struggles he is going through in his life. “I completed B.E and went for a job in Chennai. Got 8,000 as salary in my first month. That job has not worked out for me. My family have been facing financial struggles at that time. I know this job since my childhood, so I have joined in this.” says Loganathan about why he returned to his hometown.

“The pay depends on how hard we work. We could not point fingers and anyone. It is possible to lift 100 bundles per day if there is work. If there is no work, there would be 70 bundles to lift. I will get 10 rupees per bundle.” says Loganathan.
“Though it causes pain in different part of my body, I must do it to run my family. Everyone will ask me to go to while collar job as I have studied, even my mother will ask me to do it, But I like this Job. I am very proud that I am not betraying someone or making fool out of someone to make money” Loganathan says in the video.
