The History of Labor Day
Why is Labor Day celebrated in the United States? It’s important to remember that it wasn’t always about cooking out or shopping for electronics. There was a deeper meaning historically, and the holiday has its roots in poor working conditions. According to USA Today, the origins of the holiday derive from the poor working conditions in the 1800s. Children worked dangerous jobs, work days were incredibly long, and workers often faced hazards on the job, the newspaper reported. Congress made the first Monday every September a national Labor Day in 1894 after a workers’ strike and riots broke out over the bleak working conditions for many Americans, USA Today reported.
