What Labor Day is about and why we celebrate it?

Labor groups and several governments began celebrating Labor Day in the late 1800s, before it was an official holiday.

New York was the first state to introduce a bill to recognize Labor Day.

But in 1887, Oregon was the first state to make it a law.

By the end of 1887, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York had done the same.

Congress made Labor Day a holiday on June 28, 1894.

Unions fought for better working conditions when Labor Day was founded.

Workers had to fight hard to get the eight-hour work day that most people have now.
