What is the meaning of Labor Day? Labor Day is known as summer’s final fling. Most of us will get the day off, but this holiday always triggers mixed emotions. While summer still has 21 calendar days left, Labor Day signals that school is starting and a sense that summer time is over. So what is behind Labor Day, and how did it earn a place as a federal holi- day? If you get (or have gotten in the past) weekends off, lunch breaks, paid vacations, eight hour work days, or social security, you can thank labor unions and the U.S. labor movement for it! Years of hard fought battles (and the ensuing legislation they inspired) resulted in many of the most basic benefits we enjoy at our jobs to- day. On the first Monday in September, we take the day off to celebrate Labor Day and reflect on the American worker’s contributions to our country. 11 Labor Day Facts 1. The first Labor Day was on Tuesday, September 5, 1882 in New York City, planned by the Central Labor Union 2. 10,000 workers marched from City Hall all the way to 42nd St. and met their families for a picnic, and concert. 3. Canada is said to have originated the idea of hosting a day honoring the labor movement in 1872. 4. There is a disagreement about who actually proposed Labor Day as a holiday. Some say it was Pe- ter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. Others believe it was a machinist, Matthew Maguire. 5. Oregon was the first to celebrate Labor Day as a legal holiday in 1887. 6. The decision to make Labor Day the first Monday in September was approved on June 28, 1894. 7. Labor Day started as part of the labor union movement, to recognize contributions of men and women in the U.S. workforce, but modern day is seen as a chance to celebrate the last weekend of summer. 8. Americans worked 12 hour work days, seven days a week during the 19th century! 9. The Adamson Act was passed on September 3, 1916 to establish an 8 hour work day. 10.The expression “no white after labor day” comes from when the upper class would return from their summer vacations and stow away their lightweight, white summer clothes as they returned back to school and work. 11. There is still a Labor Day parade in NYC, that takes place throughout the 20 blocks of the 1882 labor march 4
