Labor Day is a national legal holiday that grew out of a celebration and parade in honor of the working class by the Knights of Labor in 1882 in New York. In 1884, the Knights held a large parade in New York City celebrating the working class. The parade was held on the first Monday in September. The Knights passed a resolution to hold all future parades on the same day, designated by them as Labor Day.

 

In the late 1880’s, labor organizations began to lobby various state legislatures for recognition of Labor Day as an official state holiday. The first states to declare it a state holiday were Oregon, Colorado, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey in 1887. Then, in 1894, Congress passed a law recognizing Labor Day as an official national holiday.

 

Today, Labor Day is observed not only in the U.S. but also in Canada and in other industrialized nations. It has come to be recognized in the U.S. not only as a celebration of the working class, but also as the unofficial end of the summer season.
