Workers' Week/Labour Day wreath-laying ceremony on Tuesday. At left is custos of Kingston Steadman Fuller. The ceremony is held in tribute to Jamaican workers who
participated in the 1938 Labour Riots, which led to improved conditions for today's workers. Workers' Week runs from May 19 to 23 and is being observed under the
theme 'Yes to Decent Work, No to Child Labour'. Thursday, May 23 is celebrated as Labour Day. (Photo: JIS)
