ORIGINS OF Labor Day
Labor Day is a public holiday honoring American Workers and the contribution they have made to the growth and prosperity of the nation.
It is celebrated on the first Monday in September in the United States. Following on from Labor Weekend it is recognised as a federal holiday and considered the end of Summer.
The origins of Labor day date back to the 19th century. This was a time when labor movements were beginning to grow. Trade unionists proposed that a day be set as a holiday to celebrate the workers.
The first official “Labor Day” was instigated by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor. A commemorative parade marked the occasion in New York City.
Oregon was the first state in the United States to make Labor Day an official public holiday back in 1887. By 1894 it was officially a federal holiday.
In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty states in the United States officially celebrated Labor Day.
Canada’s Labour Day is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. Similar labor days are celebrated in other countries, such as the May Day Bank Holiday in the UK.
Labor Day has since become an important day in the retail calendar. Many businesses offer discounts and sales to take advantage of potential customers with an additional day off work to shop. Some retailers consider Labor Day to be the largest sale date of the year, second only to Black Friday.
