    Who has to work on Labor Day ?

    I know Labor Day is coming up and I was just wondering who out there has to work on Labor Day. Seems like it is split in the middle. Beer and BBQ and then shopping sales and deals. I feel sorry for the people that are forced to work. So who is working? And is anyone getting time and 1/2 at least for working a holiday. I think the whole thing is scam. No matter how you spend you day, I wish you all best on Labor Day.:sun_smiley::sun_smiley::sun_smiley:

    Labor Day: What it Means

    Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

    Labor Day Legislation

    Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.
