History of Labor Day

Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of America’s working people. Consequently, the national holiday serves as annual tribute to the sacrifices and contributions of laborers. In addition, it recognizes that the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country is an outgrowth of the commitment and effort of American workers.

Labor Days’ observance and celebration recognizes the history and contributions of the labor movement. More over, it creates a space for recognizing how labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known. In addition, it highlights our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.
