It’s More Than Just A Long Weekend: Get To Know The History Behind Labor Day!

September 03, 2012

As many companies keep their doors closed the first Monday of September each year, their employees view it as a long holiday weekend! Families’ travel and summer is ended with friends, fires and camping!

Though it is a holiday, Labor Day in fact is a celebration! It’s a way for the nation as a whole to say “Thank You” where it may not be said enough. Labor Day is a day of recognition for the American worker.

As you’re celebrating today, the first Monday of September think back and dig into the history of where this holiday first originated.

Labor day was first brought up during a time in America that wasn’t so easy. It was a time where farms were being turned into factories and this led to power struggles and movements for the fair treatment of employees.

Though it was a difficult time in America it was the perfect time to celebrate the workingman’s struggles and strengths. This was first done on Tuesday, September 5, 1882 in the one and only New York City.

Labor Day holiday has always been about the workingman. Though it is a celebration and recognition of those people, it took twelve years for the federal Labor Day to be signed into law by President Grover Cleveland.

When Labor Day was made into an actual holiday it was also proposed that people should celebrate with street parades to exhibit the strength of the trade and labor organizations. Following the parade it was said that there would be festivals to celebrate workers and their families!

So, while you’re lying by the pool, enjoying the company of family or just catching up on sleep we wanted to say Happy Labor Day from all of us at SheetLabels.com!
