Labor Day is the first Monday in September, which pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. The Labor Day is also a symbol of the end of summer, because of the Labor Day is the last holiday in summer. Kids have a short vacation and go out from the new term and the workers get a leisure time from the busy and stressful working condition as well.
Labor Day is still celebrated in cities and towns across the United States with parades, picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays and other public gatherings. For many Americans, particularly children and young adults, it represents the end of the summer and the start of the back-to-school season.
History of Labor Day
In 1882, 4th of September, Peter McGuire, the father of Labor Day and the leadership worker of New York city, suggested that all the unions held a great parade on this day. The parade is in order to ask a more reasonable working condition from the capitalist as well as showing the power and solidarity of labor to the citizen of New York City.
On that day, over 20,000 workers in New York City have participated the parade, they held up the slogan “Labor Makes Everything” and shouting out their requirements while passing through the Broadway Avenue of New York City Center.
The protester’s parade made a federal festival
From then on, the worker in New York City held the similar parade in September every year, moreover, the Labor Union in another state of the US had begun to hold this activity as well. For that reason, in 1894, the Congress of the United States passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday on the first Monday of September.
Why does not celebrate it on May 1st?
In 19 century, America was in a high-speed era of industrialization, at the same time, a huge amount of workers was against with the capitalist, they want to dramatically shorten the working hours, increase their salary and improve the safety of their working condition.
The incipient labor movements always occur with the violent conflict, the capitalist will handle the union and strike with strict means. In May, 1, 1886, the worker across the US held a rally, they requested work 8 hours a day, in fact, the labor works over 12 hours a day at that time, in addition, a general strike was held in Chicago as well.
Three days after the strike, the worker demonstrated in the Haymarket of Chicago, during the demonstration, someone thrown a bomb to the police, then, they shot. 8 police officers and some civilians dead or injured in the conflict.
This is the “Haymarket Affair”, several union members were executed by the death penalty after the riot. The supporter of the movement rebuked the injustice of the judiciary and regard the victim as martyrs.
On May 1894, Pullman Strike broke out in Chicago, the railway traffic was paralyzed. President Stephen Grover Cleveland sends the federal army to Chicago in order to quell the strike. However, that was the year of election, Cleveland and his Democratic Party did not want to offend the labor.
Thus, the congress passed the law immediately and declared a federal holiday-Labor Day, to appreciate the dedication of all the workers. On the other hand, neither Cleveland nor Gompers wants Labor Day sets on May 1st, which has been linked to socialists and anarchists. So the day of Labor Day announced by the government is the first Monday in September.

Being grateful for whatever you currently have
There is no doubt that the comfortable life we have now is all thanks to the people who is working hard on their post, such as the farmer, police officer, firefighter and so on. As a matter of fact, the person who has to be appreciated in Labor Day is our parents, particularly are father and mother.
They raised ourselves up and try their best to work and offer the best condition in the path of our growth.
