Labor Day

Known as one of the best weekends of the year to get great deals on automobiles or appliances, Labor Day is a holiday established in the 1880s to celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers. According to the Department of Labor, this holiday serves as a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country, and recognizes the working men and women who have strived to improve working conditions since the late 1880s.  A legal holiday since 1894, enjoy this day of rest, barbeques, and family fun, as the weekend closes out the summer.
