Why Do We Celebrate Labor Day?
Labor day is typically a day off work. And since it is on a Monday, it makes for a long weekend. A day for short road trips. A day to spend time with friends and family. Barbecues, picnics, parades, boating, playing games. It’s a day to rejuvenate and have fun. A day to honor workers. All that is great, but why was the official holiday necessary?
Adults and even very young children alike were treated harshly. The work day was horrendously long and tedious.
“Labor Day 2022 will occur on Monday, September 5. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, street parades and athletic events.”
