There is a connection yes; here is part of what I posted last year:

"May I has long been the day dedicated to the working class. Labor Day as it is known internationally.
On this day, in 1055, members of the Catholic Association of Italian Workers had converged in Saint Peter’s Square, to celebrate the 10 th anniversary of their society, and to pledge their loyalty to the Social Programme of the Church. Here, Pope Pius XII granted them audience. It was then that the Pope instituted the liturgical feast of Saint Joseph the Worker, assigning it to the 1st day of May.The Pope assured his audience and the “working people of the entire world”: “ You have at your side a Shepherd, a defender and a Father.”"

Saint Philip of Zell
Hermit
Founder.

Philip was born in England. He made a pilgrimage to Rome where he was ordained.
He became a hermit near Worms, in Germany. He met King Pepin the Short of the Franks and became a friend and adviser to him.
He was highly regarded for his holiness and miracles. He attracted many followers and founded the monastery of Zell, so named because it started from a single cell or room. Around this monastery, grew the town of the same name in Germany.
Philip died in 770 and was canonized pre congregationally.
He is the patron of babies.
Saint Philip.

Saint Agostino Roscelli
Priest
Founder of the Sisters of the Immaculate

Agostino was born on 27 July 1818 to a poor family at Liguria, Italy. For much of his youth, he was a shepherd in the mountains. As we have seen many times in the past, the solitary life and long hours of the shepherd is beneficial to spiritual growth. Agostino responded to a call to the priesthood and joined a seminary at Genoa. He was ordained on 19 September 1846. He proved to be a gifted confessor to whom many people flocked for penance and counsel; spent long hours at a time in the confessional and was especially trusted by the young.
To provide care for the many poor young women in Genoa, especially those women at risk of falling into prostitution, Father Agostino established a residential center in the city. It was so successful that he founded the Institute of Sisters of the Immaculata to provide the support needed for the many young women who found their way into the care of the centers that sprang up across Italy.
The foundation was supported by Pope Pius IX. The Sisters of the Immaculate continue to serve disable children and the elderly.
Agostino died on 7 May 1902 at Genoa, Italy. He was canonized on 10 June 2001 by Pope John Paul II.
