Labor Day (Día del Trabajo), also known as May Day (Primero de Mayo), is a public holiday in Mexico on Sunday May 1.

Since this particular Mexican holiday falls on a Sunday (a non-working day), do gardeners, housekeepers and other staff observe the day on Monday in order to get a paid day off work?

It actually is a communist holiday Labor day and women s day , we celebrate the same in France. It is also the day we offer each other lily of the valley,,,
Here on the 3rd I believe is the Day of the Cross followed by Cinquo de Mayo which is also a paid holiday.. When are they celebrating it? The Following Monday or Friday or the previous Monday?

5 de Mayo is not a paid holiday.



Mandated Federal Holidays in Mexico: from this site, https://www.payrollmexico.com/mandated_holidays_in_mexico.html

January 01 - New Years Day
1st Monday of February - Constitution Day
3rd Monday of March - Benito Juarez Birthday
May 01 - Labor Day
September 16 - Independence Day
3rd Monday of November - Revolution Day
December 01 (Every 6 years) - New president of Mexico
December 25 - Christmas Day

According to article 74 of the Mexican Federal Labor Law, employees are not to work on the federally mandated holidays.

If an employee works on a federal holiday in Mexico. The employee must be paid their regular pay plus double time. In other words, triple pay for the day.

But May 1 is a Sunday. Do workers on Monday get triple pay?

The “staff” do not decide what day they observe a holiday on “in order to get a paid day off.” The government mandates when the holiday will be observed. I guess they do that in order that hard working folks actually have a day of rest with pay which is the intent of the holidays.

From Wiki

Statutory holidays
Statutory holidays (referred as "feriados" or "días de asueto" in Mexico) are legislated through the federal government and ruled by the Federal Labor Law (Ley Federal del Trabajo).[1] Most workers, public and private, are entitled to take the day off with regular pay. However, some employers may require employees to work on such a holiday, but the employee must be paid:

the regular pay for the statutory holiday if no work is performed by the employee, and
the regular pay and two additional daily salary rates if work is performed by the employee, for a total of triple the usual rate.
When a statutory holiday falls on a Sunday, Monday is considered a statutory holiday; if a statutory holiday falls on Saturday, Friday will be considered a statutory holiday.
