A Little Labor Day History

Labor Day is a national holiday in the United States that is celebrated on the first Monday in September. The holiday originated as a way to recognize the contributions of workers and to honor their achievements.

Today, Labor Day is still a time to celebrate the hard work and dedication of America’s workforce. In addition to being a day off from work for many people, Labor Day is also a time for family gatherings, picnics, and other celebrations. While the origins of Labor Day may be lost to history, its significance remains clear – it is a day to celebrate the men and women who make our country strong.

• Labor Day was created by the labor union movement in the late 19th century.

• The first Labor Day parade was held on September 5, 1882, in New York City.

• President Grover Cleveland signed Labor Day into law in 1894.

• Labor Day is sometimes referred to as “Workingman’s Holiday.”

• More than 100 million Americans are part of the labor force.

In recent years, Labor Day has also become a day for sales and special offers at stores and businesses. Regardless of how you choose to spend Labor Day, it is important to remember its purpose: to honor the hard-working men and women who make our country what it is today. Thank you, workers, of America, for all that you do! Enjoy your well-deserved day off!
