Labor Day

Sep 14, 2020

What is it?

Labor day is celebrated on the first Monday of September every year. Labor day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Overall, labor day is a tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Labor unions and the U.S. labor movement fought many battles and resulted in many of the basic benefits people enjoy at their jobs today.

 

The first Labor Day was actually celebrated on Tuesday, September 5th, 1882 in New York City. By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday. On June 28th, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed into law the first Monday of September of each year a national holiday.
