Labor Day, founded in 1882, honours American workers and their struggle for better working conditions. It's now a federal holiday.
Late 19th-century workers faced harsh conditions, sparking labor unions. They demanded fair wages, shorter hours, and improved rights.
In 1882, New York City hosted the first Labor Day parade, promoting worker unity and advocating for labor rights.
Today, Labor Day includes parades, barbecues, and a recognition of workers' contributions to the nation.
Labor Day reminds us of the ongoing fight for workers' rights, fair wages, and job security in the 21st century.
