*** Labor Day *** the 1st Monday of September every year

Labor Day

Labor Day is a federal holiday in the USA observed on the first Monday in September every year. It is the unofficial end to the summer season when that "back to school" feeling kicks in.

History of Labor Day

The idea of Labor Day emerged in the late 19th century out of the organized labor movements. In September 1882, unions in New York decided to throw themselves a parade to celebrate unions as a concept and the hard-working people comprising them.

Even though workers had to give up a day's pay to attend, more than 20,000 people showed up to the parade. It was a celebration of historic proportions.

Soon, unions in other states started having September parades, and within five years, several states declared "Labor Day" official state holidays. In 1894, 12 years after the first labor parade in New York, President Grover Cleveland signed an act establishing Labor Day as a federal holiday on the first Monday of every September.

It is a tribute to the strong work ethic of the Americans who founded this great nation.
