Labor Day 2019

 

It’s Labor Day 2019 when we gather to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. Labor Day was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and finally became a federal holiday in 1894. 


Today’s holiday originated during a dim chapter in America’s labor history. In the late 1800s, right at the peak of the Industrial Revolution in the US, the average American worked a 12-hour day, seven-day weeks in order to scrape out a basic living wage. Although some states had their own restrictions, children as young as 5 or 6 worked in factories, mines, and mills along with their parents, earning just a fraction of adult counterparts’ wages.

Workers eventually united to demand change, with protests often turning violent. In response to the massive unrest and in an attempt to repair ties with American workers, Congress passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories. 


On June 28, 1894, it was President Grover Cleveland that signed the observance of Labor Day into law. Over 100 years later, the true founder of Labor Day remains a mystery.
