Meaning of Labor Day !

AS A Card Carrying Member  of the Teamsters Union for over 18 years I wish all my labor brothers and Sisters a relaxing and well earned day of rest

Labor Day is a holiday in the United States that is dedicated to workers across the country. The intention of the holiday is to recognize the contributions that laborers make to the United States as a whole. The public holiday always falls on the first Monday in September.
Recognition of the workers was inspired by the labor movement and Canada’s observation of labor festivals. The first federal observation of the holiday occurred in 1894 however the first Labor Day observed in a state was in Oregon in 1887.
Parades and festivals are held on Labor Day to give people the opportunity to relax and enjoy the day before returning to work. In many towns and cities, fireworks signal the end of festivals that are held in honor of the holiday.
