Labor Day: A day meant to celebrate the American worker?
The first official labor day happened on September 5, 1882. The holiday was passed in many different state legislatures before becoming a legal holiday on June 28, 1894. Celebrated on the first Monday of September every year, it is meant to symbolize thanks and appreciation for the American worker's achievements. Though it's become heavily commercialized in more recent years, becoming just another day for retail stores to have sales and people to have parties. Without actually recognizing the real work others do and that there are still so many people who have to go to work, the day is also about them. Thank you to all workers everywhere no matter where you work or what you do, we see you, and we appreciate you.
