In the News: Labor Day History

The Labor Day holiday developed in the late 19th century by an organized labor movement in New York City. The Central Labor Union in New York City celebrated the first Labor Day holiday on September 5, 1882. The union urged other organizations to do the same to celebrate a "workingmen's holiday". It gives workers a day of rest and celebrates their contribution to the American economy. Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887. In 1894, Labor Day became a celebrated holiday in 30 states. Later that year, President Grover Cleveland established Labor Day as a federal holiday after the events of the Pullman Strike.
