Labour Day is a time to celebrate the contributions of the nation’s workers across all industries. It’s also a time to give workers a much-needed day off to spend with family and friends or, perhaps, at the beach or other top attractions.

It’s mostly peaceful on Labour Day in Dominican Republic, with many businesses shut down for the day. But there are also a few protests and workers rallies going on, which often make headlines in the newspapers and on TV.
