Labor Day 2017
For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and the end of summer. But why is it called Labor Day?
The first Monday in September, Labor Day, is a labor movement creation and is dedicated to American workers ‘ social and economic achievements. It is an annual national tribute to the contributions made by workers to our country’s prosperity, strength and well-being. In accordance with Central Labor Union plans, the very first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City on Tuesday, September 5, 1882. Just a year later, on September 5, 1883, the Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday. In 1894, as originally proposed, the first Monday in September was chosen as the holiday, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow New York’s and celebrate on that date as a “workingmen’s holiday.” The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and many different industrial centers in our country celebrated Labor Day in 1895.
