The first Monday in September is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year, Labor Day! Many people cherish this as one last long weekend before summer ends, but what is the real significance of Labor Day?
The United States Department of Labor notes Labor Day is a day to celebrate American workers, like you and me, and became a federal holiday in 1894. It pays tribute to the conditions, achievements, and sacrifices of the American people that take part in making America one of the strongest and most prosperous countries in the world.
As we celebrate Labor Day this year, let us reflect on all our ancestors did before us, and remain grateful for our jobs and all we receive from them; a stable economy, a way to put food on your table, your path of life, and of course the ‘on the job’ benefits like 401ks, healthcare and vacation time.
We at DWM hope you all have a happy and safe long weekend celebrating one of America’s best holidays… LABOR DAY!
