USA: Labor Day!

Kory Mitchell, construction machine!

Today is the Labor Day holiday, a date designated to salute the workers and their work performance that built this country. It is a national observance and for many it serves as the unofficial last day of the summer season. Traditionally, in school districts throughout the country, students returned to their classrooms tomorrow, the day after Labor Day.

In the middle to late 19th century, labor movements and trade unions grew in importance and significance in the USA. Groups and organizations began to look for a date to celebrate and honor workers. The Knights of Labor met in New York City in September, 1882, and on Monday, September 5, held a public parade of various labor groups.

The first Monday in September became the proposed date for the observance. In 1887, Oregon became the first state to make Labor Day an official public holiday. In 1894, it was adopted by Congress as an official national public holiday.

Saluting workers!

Happy Labor Day and thank you for all your hard work!

Take care and stay bare!
