Ideas On How You Could Celebrate Labor Day Weekend
[heading size=”17″ align=”left” margin=”30″]Many Americans do not know why Labor Day is a national holiday and have come to associate Labor Day weekend as the end of summer and the start of football season. In fact, Labor Day is intended to commemorate the men and women who fought for better working conditions and reasonable work hours in the late 19th century.[/heading]
Overworked men and women formed Labor Unions in order to express their outrage with the dangerous and hostile environments they were forced to work in for twelve hours a day, every day of the week.

Keep labor unions in mind… as you indulge on your day off.
