Labor Day is celebrated the first Monday in September in the United States. It is a formation of the labor movement and is committed to the social accomplishments of the American workers. It represents the contributions people have given to the affluence, strength, and welfare of our country.

After more than 100 years after the first Labor Day celebration, there is even now some uncertainty as to who was the first to suggest the holiday for people in the workplace. Several people think that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, was the person who decided to give a day to pay tribute to those who have worked and helped others, called Labor Day.
Other people argue that they think Matthew Maguire, a machine operator, not Peter McGuire, created the holiday. The latest study appears to maintain the debate that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, New Jersey, suggested the holiday in 1882. It is obvious that the Central Labor Union approved a Labor Day suggestion. Labor Day’s original celebration was held on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in agreement with the policies of the Central Labor Union. In September, the first Monday was chosen in 1884 as the holiday, as initially suggested. So celebrate Labor Day by relaxing, and using your leisure time wisely. Thank the ones that have worked so hard for you! Just have fun!
