Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States that celebrates the contributions of workers and the labor movement. It is observed on the first Monday in September each year. 

The history of Labor Day is rooted in the labor struggles of the late 19th century; during this time the labor movement was gaining momentum and workers were beginning to demand fair wages, better working conditions, and shorter working hours. Against this backdrop of labor unrest, the idea of a national holiday to honor workers was gaining traction. Labor unions called for a day dedicated to celebrating the contributions of the labor force.

On September 5, 1882, the U.S. government established Labor Day as a federal holiday, and it was first recognized in New York City.

On this day, take a much deserved rest, and spend time relaxing with family and friends. Yes, and then back to work on Tuesday!
