The first Labor Day was held in New York City on Sept. 5, 1882 and was started by the Central Labor Union. In 1884, it was moved to the first Monday in September where it is celebrated today. Labor Day quickly became popular and one state after another voted it as a holiday. On June 28, 1894, the U.S. Congress voted it a national holiday. SOURCE: FASCINATING FACTS In the late 19th century, the average working day consisted of 12 hours. Held on a Tuesday, the first Labor Day rally was held in order to gain support for the eight-hour workday. Although Labor Day hails from Canada and the U.S., a large number of industrialized nations around the world celebrate Labor Day as a time to respect and reflect upon workers around the world. 99.44 percent of the time, the NFL plays its first official season game the Thursday after Labor Day. 70 constructor | SEPTEM BER/ O CTO BER 2015 The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.
