Labor Day was established as a federal holiday on June 28, 1894. It is celebrated on the first Monday in September and is a day to honor the contributions of workers and the achievements brought about by the labor movement. The labor movement advocated for workers to implement fair wages, safer working conditions, and worker’s rights.
For most people, Labor Day signifies the end of summer. The three day weekend is often celebrated with parades, barbecues, picnics, outdoor activities, and family get-togethers. It is a time to kick back and relax! We at DWM would like to wish you have a happy, safe, and fun Labor Day weekend!
