Labor Day 2015


Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

  1. I think Americans would improve our country if they thought about the origin of why there is a Labor Day than using it as another "day off"

  2. Adam makes a good point. At the same time there are usually parades and celebrations that include tributes to working people. If there is a parade there is usually a speech that should include a history of workers and their trials and victories. Then get out the boat or invite the neighbors for a barbecue. Besides remembering we must take advantage of the opportunity to relax on the day honoring the worker.
