LABOR DAY – A TRIBUTE TO OUR WORK FORCE

First observed on Sept. 5, 1882, in New York when a parade of 10,000 workers took to the streets, Labor Day was celebrated ten years later by over half the states. Congress and President Grover Cleveland made it a federal holiday in 1894.

According to the US Census Bureau, 153.2 million Americans are in the workforce. And, today, unlike 100 years ago, 6 million workers currently work from home. Let’s remember to pay tribute to them (and those of us retired) on Monday.
