Labor Day: First established, Federally, in 1894, after the Pullman Strike. The September date was chosen to divorce it from the May 1 celebration of International Workers’ Day because of fear it would be connected to Communism.

Labor Day: One of the biggest retail sales days, so of course, retail sales people have to work, not to forget all the health and safety workers. Ironic, isn’t it?
