Labor Day celebrations were initiated in the 1880's to commemorate the critical struggle of the working-class individuals all over the world.

However, 2021 sees Kenyans face harsh economic times in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition to this, the expenses of 54 percent of households in Kenya are about to go up following a rise in the cost of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), commonly known as cooking gas.

This follows the reinstatement of 16% value added tax (VAT) which is set to begin on July 1, 2021.
