Happy Labor Day

September 4, 2011 ·

Honor Labor!

 

Celebrated by the government as a day to recognize the social and economic achievements of American workers, Labor Day was conceptualized in the late 1800s when labor unions formed.  Today, Labor Day signifies a day without labor where government entities and many private employers allow their workforces to take a day off with pay. 

This Labor Day, as you sip some lemonade, please don’t forget to give a toast to those who made it possible.  Without them, there would be no standard 8-hour workdays and minimum wage!
