Happy Labor Day!

While for many Labor Day is (in addition to being a day off of work) means BBQs, sales, and a festive way to end the summer, the U.S. Department of Labor’s website explains that the federal holiday “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.”
