Well let’s start with its true historic context: Labor Day, some also call it the “Day of Labor,” is observed annually on the first Monday of September and has been a national holiday in the US since 1894.

It originates from the campaign of an early labor movement, the Knights of Labor, and was celebrated as a holiday in some regions even before 1894. Just imagine…

So Labor Day isn’t just a long weekend for barbecues and relaxation; it’s a day to celebrate the hardworking women and men who fought tirelessly for workers’ rights during the late 19th century. These dedicated individuals are the reason we enjoy many workplace rights today, like the 40-hour workweek, safe working conditions, paid time off, and sick leave.

It’s important to remember that these workers saw economic freedom for the working class as essential to the freedom and liberty of the entire nation. Labor Day is a tribute to the incredible strength of American workers, unions, and labor leaders who have shaped our country.

As you enjoy Labor Day 2023, take a moment to reflect on the contributions of laborers, past and present, who have built America into the nation it is today. Whether you’re at a picnic, a parade, or just spending time with loved ones, let’s honor those who have made our workplace rights a reality with our beloved ones and a nice glass of your favorite wine from VinoVoss!
