The Labor Day weekend holiday is just a week away and millions of Americans will soon be celebrating the four-day holiday weekend which constitutes the official end of summer. Labor Day was established as an official holiday in 1886 by President Grover Cleveland in support of the labor movement in the nation. And it has consecutively occurred on the first Monday in September for the past 128 years.
Cleveland’s signing the holiday into law came in the aftermath of the Haymarket massacre in 1886, which started as a peaceful labor rally for labor reform in Chicago IL, yet ended in the death of seven police officers as well as four civilian protesters. The rally was held for workers striking for 8-hour work days and instituted a change in labor laws, as well as a holiday honoring the nation’s work force.
Many elements have changed in the work place since the institution of the Labor Day holiday, as well as the Haymarket massacre. Arriving punctually on time is one thing that has not changed. And having the right timepiece for work is just as vital today as it was over 100 years ago.
