Happy Labor Day!  Labor Day

Labor Day is dedicated to the economic and social prosperity of workers and has been a federal holiday since 1894.

More on the holiday from the U.S. Department of Labor:

"The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation's strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker."
