Labor Day, Eh

August 31, 2019 — Leave a comment

Everyone enjoys Labor Day but how did it get started and why? We probably should take a few minutes out of our picnic today and thank our Canadian friends.

 

Happy Labor Day eh?

 

Although political rhetoric and in-fighting is at an all time high; the fact remains that The United States of America is the greatest country in the history of the world. Our country was founded on the idea of self-reliance and the ingenuity of individuals who work. They work in order to add value for themselves, their families, community and country. However, like many things we, Americans, sometimes borrow ideas from other countries and before long they’re believed to be our own creations or an inherent American idea.

So, did you know that this day which is set aside to recognize the economic and social impact of those who work in our country was originally a Canadian idea?

Many argue that Labor Day was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May of 1882, after witnessing the annual Labor Festival in Toronto, Canada.  In 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed into law this day as a National Holiday. Since that date we have set aside the 1st Monday in September to recognize the economic and social contributions of workers in our country.

As we celebrate the day with picnics, barbecues, and parades with friends and neighbors; let us not forget the reason that we celebrate. Today we celebrate the ingenuity, diligence and the hard work of those who get up each day to add value to society. So, regardless of whether Labor Day was our original idea or not; thanks eh, to all of you who work each day.

So, how are you celebrating Labor Day? Share with me on Facebook, twitter or LinkedIn
