Monday September 2 is designated “Labor Day” in the United States of America. This year is the 125th anniversary of Labor Day, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The first Labor Day was celebrated on Tuesday September 5, 1882. In 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed the law designating the first Monday in September as the official Labor Day Holiday. The United States of America has one of the highest standards of living in the world, due in large part to the extraordinary workers of our country. Labor Day is an acknowledgement of the American worker’s contribution to our national success.
