What is Labor Day? The U.S. Department of Labor states it is the following, "Labor Day, the first Monday in September, 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." To me, this day means we work hard all year long, and our country is thanking us with a vacation day to get out and have fun!
