Some Labor Day Tidbits

With the Labor Day weekend upon us and hopefully one filled with lots of things you enjoy doing, some info morsels about the day. The first U.S. Labor Day was celebrated in New York on Septmeber 5th, 1882. 10,000 workers took unpaid leave for a parade and picnic.

In 1887, Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a holiday.

June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in Septmeber a legal holiday.  In the late 1880s, the average American worked 12 hour days up to 7 days a week.

The Adamson Act in 1916 established the 8-hour work day.

We celebrate the accomplishments of the millions and millions of men and women in the U.S. workforce. I know we’d like to have lots more in that pool in these tough times. Working in the business I do (open 24/7 and never closes) there have been lots of holidays worked, but I wouldn’t trade this career for anything! I hope you feel the same way about what you do and here’s to a great weekend!!!!!  DB
