Time flies, and in the blink of an eye we'll be at the end of August, which means summer is coming to an end and Labor Day is just around the corner. Labor Day is a major holiday in the United States that occurs every September and commemorates the hard-fought struggle of American workers for the right to work. Labor Day is therefore a national holiday in the U.S. and falls on the first Monday in September, with a day off to show respect for laborers.

Origin of Labor Day

The origins of Labor Day in the United States can be traced back to the late 19th century, when American workers faced extremely harsh working conditions, working 12-14 hours or more a day for a meager wage. They had to form labor unions to fight against the factory bosses for their rights. After a long struggle, on September 5, 1894, the U.S. Congress passed a "Labor Day Act", which made January 1, May 1 and the first week of the year a legal holiday. Thus, the United States became the first country in the world to establish Labor Day.

Significance of Labor Day

Labor Day in the United States is a day to commemorate the struggle of working people for the right to work and to recognize the contributions of American workers to the building of our nation. Labor Day in the United States is more than a holiday of celebration; it is a day of reaffirmation of the great victory of the American people in their struggle to hold fast to freedom and dignity, to oppose injustice and unfairness, and to preserve a better and more just working environment and quality of life. It also symbolizes the strong workers' movement in the United States and the government's focus on labor rights. For most Americans, Labor Day provides a very rare long weekend of three consecutive days off. In the United States, Labor Day also conventionally symbolizes the end of summer. In some areas, Labor Day is the last day of summer vacation for children, and after Labor Day they will see the beginning of a new school year.
