The Story of Labor Day
Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and began as a tribute to workers who have allowed the United States to proper. At first it was a holiday adopted state by state. Over time the celebration began to catch nationwide and, in 1894, Labor Day was approved as a national holiday to be observed on the first Monday of every September.
There is some dispute as to who is truly the father of Labor Day. Traditionally it was attributed to Peter J. McGuire, a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. However, historians in recent years believe a New York Central Union secretary named Matthew Maguire could have come up with Labor Day first.
McGuire or Maguire, it is still a great holiday celebrating workers of this United States!
Have a wonderful Labor Day and celebrate your right to this day off with family and friends.
