For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things:
a day off and the end of summer.
But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women.
On this date 135 years ago – September 5, 1882 – the first Labor Day parade was held in New York City. Twenty thousand workers marched in a parade up Broadway carrying banners celebrating the power of the worker. It has been celebrated as a national holiday in the United States since 1894. On this very special day, take a moment to reflect on these words of wisdom from leaders who walked before us.
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken
with painstaking excellence.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” – Thomas Jefferson
“Nobody can think straight who does not work. Idleness warps the mind.” – Henry Ford
“Wealth is the product of labor.” – John Locke
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucious
“There is no substitute for hard work.” – Thomas Edison
With these words to guide you, enjoy the day off and be sure to celebrate your coworkers and those around you.
