We join in recognizing the hard work and innovations and works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. Happy Labor Day!
In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks. On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history.
The idea of a “workingmen’s holiday,” celebrated on the first Monday in September, caught on in other industrial centers across the country, and many states passed legislation recognizing it. Congress legalized the holiday 12 years later.
On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed it into law.
