When I asked my children if they knew why we celebrate Labor Day – My youngest responded with “Pretty sure it has something to do with being in labor, you know being pregnant.” I realized quickly I was in need of explaining the real meaning of why we celebrate Labor Day.
The question is How did Labor day come about and what does it mean? I found the below information on the U.S.Department of Labor website.
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
