Labor Day: The Average Working Joe: American Hero.

September 1, 2014 , , ,

PROFESSIONAL!

PROS1

America’s very first Labor Day was held in NYC Tuesday, September 5, 1882. Over 10,000 workers marched in Wendel’s Elm park  and took unpaid leave for a concert picnic featuring speeches that celebrate industrial centers of the USA. The Central Labor Union planned this event and in 1885 it began to be celebrated nation wide as a national holiday.

Labor Day, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, means  the first Monday in September is a creation of the labor movement. This day is dedicated to the economic and social achievements of the American workers. Workers have strived for the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the American country and Labor Day
constitutes a yearly national tribute to these contributions!
