On Wednesday, April 1, Google launched the doodle in honor of the International Day of labor.

This holiday commemorates the working protests in Chicago which began on May 1, 1986.  On that very day, hundreds of thousands of the biggest working industrial centers in the USA demanded the implementation of the 8 hours working day.
