We all look forward to Labor Day weekend, which is the unofficial end to summer, a time to fit in one last weekend getaway, and for most, an extra day off work. However, Labor Day was established as a time to celebrate American workers and our achievements. It’s a time to reflect on what we’ve done to make this country great.
Labor Day was first celebrated in New York City on September 5, 1882. The Central Labor Union held the celebration as a day to recognize the contributions and hard work that workers made for America’s economic prosperity. Individual states adopted Labor Day as a holiday, but it wasn’t until June 28, 1894, that President Cleveland signed a law to make it an official federal holiday, which is recognized on the first Monday each September.
