The Labour Day Special (stunt)

On the 1st of May, 1986, more than 1,5 million workers observed Workers’ Day, declaring it a holiday. Premier Foods became the first large employee to treat it as a paid holiday, and other companies quickly followed suit.

Workers’ Day pays homage to the years of fighting that workers in South Africa went through for fair labour laws and equal treatment between races.

TNT would like to join in this celebration by showing a collection of films featuring main characters in important lines of work.

Below is the list of shows you can look forward to:
