Summer’s almost over! Best wishes for the long Labor Day holiday weekend!
The observance of Labor Day began over 100 years ago. Conceived by America’s labor unions as a testament to their cause, the legislation sanctioning the holiday was shepherded through Congress amid labor unrest and signed by President Grover Cleveland as a reluctant election-year compromise.
So many things now seem anchored around Labor Day. Unofficial end of summer, back to school, fall kickoff meetings, pool closings, etc.
