Not Just Another Day Off: Dallas Employment Lawyer Discusses Labor Day

Labor Day is a national tribute to the contributions workers have made to our country.

Labor Day isn’t just another holiday off. It’s a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers—a national tribute to the contributions workers have made to our country.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on September 5, 1882, in New York City. The event was put on by the Central Labor Union. By 1884, the first Monday in September had been selected as the holiday, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to hold their own “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The first governmental recognition of Labor Day came through municipal ordinances passed during the mid-1880s, and the first state law recognizing Labor Day was passed in Oregon in 1887. By the end of the decade, many other states also recognized the occasion.

The first few Labor Day celebrations included street parades and festivals for workers and their families. Labor Day celebrations have changed over the years, but media outlets still highlight Labor Day speeches by union officials, industrialists, and government officials.
