December 28, 1869 is a date most of us will not remember. But it does have significance in American history. The first ever Labor Day was celebrated on this date by the Knights of Labor, a secret society that featured Pennsylvanian tailors.
The American Federation of Labor resolved in 1884 to observe the first Monday in September as National Labor Day and also to designate it as a federal holiday. September 2, 2013 is when Lab.
Labor Day also has some other highlights. It signals the end of summer and Americans returning from their vacations. If you represent a company or institution, you should use Labor Day to highlight your products, services or cause.
