May 3, 2010 | Non Working Holiday | No Office and No Classes

Perhaps you are asking if we have Office or Classes on May 1, 2010 in the Philippines. Yeah, we have classes and office on May 1, 2010 (Saturday) because Gloria Arroyo declared the labor day as Non Working Holiday on Monday, May 3, 2010. Below is the detailed news:

It will be a long weekend this week after Malacanang on Wednesday announced that May 3 will be a non-working holiday in the country so as to give Filipinos a chance to observe Labor Day.

Labor Day or May 1 falls on a Saturday this year but in keeping with its holiday economics policy, MalacaƱang has decided to move the observance of the holiday on the nearest working day, which is May 3 or this Monday, Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza said.

Labor officials the other day said President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will not make any wage increase announcements on Labor Day because wage boards in seven regions that have filed wage hike petitions were still holding deliberations that may conclude only in two or three weeks' time.

But they said the Palace will hold a “mega, mega” job fair on May 1 that will see the government offering 60,000 to 80,000 local and foreign jobs, the biggest ever in the nine-year-old Arroyo administration.
