Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of hard working Americans. Created by the Labor Trade Union in the late 19th century, Labor Day became a Federal holiday in 1894. The first Monday in September was selected for a holiday, while the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow suit as a “workingmen’s holiday,” and the idea spread across the country.
Today, Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer for many Americans, celebrated with parties, cookouts, parades, and athletic events. Students return to school; companies restore normal working hours for the fall, and Jerry Lewis traditionally hosted the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon.
