Labor Day

Labor Day, which celebrates the American labor movement and workers, occurs on the first Monday of each September. The idea for Labor Day first started in 1882 to celebrate workers' unions' members. In 1894, it was established as a federal holiday. It is often celebrated with parades and picnics. It is viewed by many as the unofficial end of summer.

Most government organizations, schools, and banks are closed. Some businesses may close early, and many hold Labor Day sales.
