Here is why we have Monday off

Labor Day has been around for more than 100 years

What is Labor Day? Why is it celebrated?

Labor Day is on Monday. It is held in the Unites States and Canada. Labor Day is a day of festivities held in honor of working people. It  also honors the American Labor  movement  and the hard work and dedication of the American people.

On this day there is a parade celebrated downtown or festivities being held. The history of  Labor Day is that it became a federal holiday in 1894 but only 30 states officially celebrated it at the time. Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hand of the United States military during the Pullman Strike, the United States congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a National Holiday.

Other countries celebrate  International workers day on May 1st (their type of Labor Day).

Labor day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the Labor movement.
