Labor Day is a time in which the nation comes together every year to celebrate all the hard working Americans. The holiday began in the 19th
century as an outcome of the Labor Movement in America. In the early months of 1887, Oregon became the first of the fifty states to enact Labor Day as a holiday. Within the same year Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York also passed into law the Labor Day Holiday. As of 1894, 23 states in America had embraced the holiday tradition of honoring their workers. Finally, in June 28th
of 1894 Congress decreed Labor Day as holiday in the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. Americans everywhere, now enjoy this yearly celebration of our country’s productive workers on the first Monday of every September with festivals, barbecues, and summer fun.
