On May 1 -International Workers’ Day, let’s remember and acknowledge all those who contributed to a fairer treatment of workers, Macedonian President Stevo Pendarovski said in his May 1st message.
“At the same time, we are grateful to all those still fighting for decent working conditions, appropriate wages and social security, building a society where honest work will be valued with dignity and workers’ rights will be fully protected,” President Pendarovski said.
The head of state said North Macedonia’s development and progress depended on the working conditions the country provided. These were also a prerequisite for young people to stay in their homeland, he added.
“So we should constantly reexamine the achieved workers’ rights, prevent their exploitation, think about how we can promote them to bring in greater prosperity. Our job is to ensure that workers have the necessary education and training and that they are treated fairly by employers, and to remove barriers to full participation in the workplace for citizens with disabilities.”
“Let us commit to providing opportunities for everyone, because every worker deserves respect and has the right to a dignified life. I wish a happy May 1st to all workers!” Pendarovski said.
