Why do we celebrate Labor Day? Congress passed the act to make the first Monday in September a holiday in 1894, following the lead of states, New York and Oregon, which made the holiday official in 1887. The labor unions of the late 1800s and early 1900s are credited with helping workers secure fair wages and decent working conditions. You can help celebrate their success by turning this late summer holiday into fun for the whole family. Consider the following ideas when planning your next low cost Labor Day holiday celebration:
