Labor Day 2018 is here the annual American celebration that occurs annually the first Monday of September.
What is Labor Day? According to the U.S. Department of Labor, it 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."
It has been celebrated in America since the late 1800s.
