This Badge for 1934 has a striking design, Hammer & Sickle, Eagle, Swastika. Brass. A diferrent medal was produced for each year. Tag Der Arbeit = Day of work or "Labour Day". The German Government turned International Labour Day (May Day) into "Day of National Labour" or National Labour Day and gave workers a yearly May Day holiday. All trade union offices were occupied, all unions incorporated into new German Labour Front (DAF). This was part of the moves to consolidate all power into the hands of Hitler & the Nazi Party.
