What Labor Day Means?

For most people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and a chance to say goodbye to the summer.

But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women.

It has been celebrated as a national holiday in the United States and Canada since 1894.

"Labor Day differs in every essential way from the other holidays of the year in any country," said Samuel Gompers, founder and longtime president of the American Federation of Labor.

"All other holidays are in a more or less degree connected with conflicts and battles of man's prowess over man,

of strife and discord for greed and power, of glories achieved by one nation over another.

Labor Day...is devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race, or nation."
