Labor Day is an annual celebration of workers' achievements and was established in the midst of one of America's worst chapters of labor history.
In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living. Children as young as five or six years old worked in mines, factories, and mills throughout the country, earning only a fraction of what their adult counterparts.
People of all ages, especially the poorest and most recent immigrants, faced unsafe working conditions with limited access to fresh air, sanitary facilities, and breaks.
Many of these events became violent, including the Haymarket Riot of 1886 in which many Chicago policemen were killed. Others gave rise to longstanding traditions: On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history.
In other industrial centers, the idea of a "workingmen’s holiday," which is celebrated on the first Monday of September, was popularized and many states adopted legislation to recognize it. The holiday was not authorized by Congress until 12 years later. This historic moment in American labor history saw workers' rights become fully visible to the public.
In an effort to restore relations with American workers in the wake of the unrest, Congress passed an Act making Labor Day a legal holiday in both the District of Columbia (and the territories). On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. The true originator of Labor Day is still unknown more than 100 years later.
Many credit Peter J. McGuire as cofounder of American Federation of Labor. Others suggest that Matthew Maguire was the first to propose the holiday.
Labor Day is still celebrated across the United States in cities and towns with parades and barbecues, fireworks displays, and other public events. It is a day that marks the end of summer for many Americans, especially young people, and the beginning of back-to school season. Along with Ontario Volkswagen Labor Day Sales Event
The Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1967 changed many holidays to ensure that they were observed on Mondays. This was so federal employees could enjoy more three-day weekends. This Act was signed into law by President Nixon on June 28, 1968. It changed Washington's Birthday Memorial Day and Columbus Day to be fixed Mondays every year.
