Happy Labor Day

What is Labor Day?  From the US Department of Labor here's some exerts about Labor Day. 

  • Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

It is wonderful to celebrate a day where we recognize each other as positive contributors to this great country.

  • The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.  

When I read this I'm reminded of Disney movie, Newsies. 

Thank you for giving to our country through your dedication to character, honesty in work, and determination to uphold freedom through all you do. 



Happy Labor Day!
