Today is the 125th anniversary of Labor Day being celebrated as a national holiday. It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers in America. This day is a national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well being of our country.
On Labor Day, we celebrate the last, official day of summer and look to the coming season of more holidays and celebrations. Sometimes we forget the real meaning of some of these holidays. So, when you are donning your favorite swimsuit today and preparing to dive in, remember why you have the day off!
