Today is September 06, time to celebrate Labor Day! But do you know what Labor Day is and its history? If you do not, you can learn it here.

What is Labor Day?

Labor Day is a day to celebrate the Labor movement and the contributions of workers. It’s celebrated every year on the first Monday of September.

History of Labor Day

On September 5, 1882, the Central Labor Union of New York passed a resolution that called for an “annual festival in honor of labor.” The idea spread and eventually became a national holiday. 

On June 28, 1894, there was a parade in New York City commemorating work and labor rights. It was held by 10,000 members of The Central Labor Union.
