May 1, 2012 is among the declared official regular, non-working holidays under Proclamation No. 295 ““DECLARING THE REGULAR HOLIDAYS, SPECIAL (NON-WORKING) DAYS, AND SPECIAL HOLIDAY (FOR ALL SCHOOLS) FOR THE YEAR 2012“ signed by Pres. Noynoy Aquino.
May 1, 2012 is the celebration of 110th Labor Day and it falls on a Tuesday. In the previous administration we were used to so-called “holiday economics”, where a holiday is moved to either the nearest Monday or Friday, to give long weekend breaks for employees and students.
