Labor Day is a federal holiday, which was established in 1894 in the United States. The holiday seeks to “honor the contributions that workers have made to the development, growth, endurance, strength, security, prosperity, productivity, laws, sustainability, persistence, structure, and well-being of the country.” It is held every year on the first Monday in September.
In 2019, Labor Day falls on Monday, September 2. Labor Day is considered to be the unofficial end of summer and many people celebrate with backyard barbecues or pool parties. Others use the extended weekend to finish back-to-school shopping for their children.
