Take it easy this Labor Day
To many American’s the Labor Day holiday represents the end of summer, but it was established to honor the American labor movement and the workers whose contributions have added to the strength, prosperity and well-being of their country.
Labor Day was first promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first ever parade in New York City. It was President Grover Cleveland who designated May 1 as Labor Day to commemorate the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago that took place on May 4, 1886. The date was switched to September of 1887, the date that the Knights originally supported.
