Many people do not know the significance of Labor Day or why it is a national holiday.
Labor Day, which is celebrated the first Monday in September, is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It’s a tribute to all the many contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our great country.
The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City. It was subsequently celebrated the following year on a Tuesday, but in 1884 it was moved to the first Monday in September. The Central Labor Union urged organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.
To all the men and women who are the thumping beat of America…the heart…what keeps it alive, we salute you!
