Labor Day is a Federal holiday and typically celebrated on the first Monday in September. This holiday honors workers who have and continue to contribute to the development and maintenance of the well-being and quality of life. 
The holiday was first proposed in 1880 as part of the American labor movement. There are several different stories of who proposed it. The Central Labor Union and Knights of Labor promoted the day and organized the first parade in New York City. [1 2]
The first parade almost didn’t get started. There were hundreds of marchers, but no music to march to. Finally the Jewelers Union of Newark Two showed up with a band and the march was on. Final reports estimate that between 10,000 and 20,000 men and women marched that day. 
The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known, and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker. 
Oregon was the first state in the country to make Labor Day an official public holiday (1887).
Over 30 countries, like our Canadian neighbors, celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in September. Find a fun way this year to celebrate the fruits of our labor!
