Today, being the 24th of the month, relates to the 24th Article of theUnited Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights on reasonable limitation of working hours.
The Declaration's Article 24 is only an ideal and not part of a binding on nations Covenant.
The ICESCR International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights Article 7(d) deals with UDHR Article 24 ideals and objectives.
The States Parties to the present Covenant recognize the right of everyone to the enjoyment of just and favourable conditions of work which ensure, in particular:
(a) Remuneration which provides all workers, as a minimum, with:
(i) Fair wages and equal remuneration for work of equal value without distinction of any kind, in particular women being guaranteed conditions of work not inferior to those enjoyed by men, with equal pay for equal work;
(ii) A decent living for themselves and their families in accordance with the provisions of the present Covenant;
(b) Safe and healthy working conditions;
(c) Equal opportunity for everyone to be promoted in his employment to an appropriate higher level, subject to no considerations other than those of seniority and competence;
(d ) Rest, leisure and reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay, as well as remuneration for public holidays.
