In elementary school when holidays approached, my teachers gave the history on why we celebrated them. Year after year, we’d cutout shapes, color pre-made outlines, or glue cotton balls to construction paper to commemorate the monumental day. But for the life of me, I can’t remember the purpose of Labor Day. So being the Google-master that I am, I looked it up. 😉
According to the United States Department of Labor, Labor Day is
a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Great job workers! Now let’s kick back and have some barbecue.
