Happy Labor Day!


Today, we celebrate the workmanship of our fellow Americans whose contributions have strengthened our country's economy. Labor Day began unofficially in the 1800s. However, by the late 1800s, several states began recognizing the holiday. New York was the first state to introduce a bill acknowledging Labor Day. Yet, in 1887, Oregon became the first state to codify it into law. The legislation was later introduced by United States Sen. James Henderson Kyle of South Dakota and approved on June 28, 1894, making Labor Day a federal holiday on the first Monday of September, according to the National Constitutions Center.
