What is Labor Day in the USA?

What is Labor Day to USA
Does anyone even remember why Labor Day exists? For millions of workers, is is another day is another day on the job. The law actually does not require employers to pay any wage premium when they force their employees to work on Labor Day, or any other national holiday. The real reason for Labor Day is to give tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.  What a better way to give tribute for hard work then a detail from a professional laborer?

Background of Labor Day

The first parade occurred September 5, 1882, in New York City. Its origins stem from the desire of the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. In later years, festivals were held, and some prominent men and women held speeches. One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving. The idea spread across the country, and that’s how it was created across various states.

Labor Day is a day of rest or the last chance for many people to get one last trip to the beach or have a cookout before the weather starts to turn colder.  There may be traffic jams on highways and waits at airports. For students, it is the last chance to organize parties before school starts again. In some neighborhoods, people organize fireworks displays, public arts or sports events as it is also the beginning of football season.  Many teams play their first game of the year during Labor Day weekend.

As the summer ends, people are storing up their beloved vehicles for the winter months.  What a better way to store them away then a cleaning from a professional?  It’s a great way to celebrate Labor Day and end out the summer.
