We Recognize The American Worker On Labor Day
Where did the "Frog Days Of Summer" go? Today is Labor Day, a time where we salute you and other hard working Americans. As a federal holiday, there is no regular mail delivery, governmental offices are closed as well as banks, credit unions and financial institutions. So, how did Labor Day come about?
According to the U.S. Department Of Labor:
"Labor Day, the first Monday in September, 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.
The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.
In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday."
Enjoy your day off - you've earned it! If you're working today, we hope those hours will fly by for you. At Big Frog 104, we salute all the dedicated men and women in America's workforce.
