Labor Day is one of those holidays that I never quite understood. I always suspected that it had something to do with work (you know, because of “labor”) and as I grew older I went along with “a day to honor workers,” but it’s not a holiday I was quick to research or learn about …
As with the norm, I “googled” it.
And it lead me to the Department of Labor’s website, which gives a little history about this day (feel free to visit it here).
“A day to honor workers” isn’t far from the reason the DOL provides on their website. They state it’s “a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.”
America has achieved a lot. In the workforce, there have been a lot of improvements. There is also a long more way to go, but that is for another post.
So, with that said, I hope everyone had a great weekend and a relaxing Labor Day!
