Labor Day, an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers, is observed the first Monday in September. This holiday originated in the late 1800s, when labor activists promoted federal holidays to recognize the many contributions of workers to America's strength, prosperity, and well-being. The first ever labor day was actually celebrated on a Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, planned and executed by the Central Labor Union. By 1824, 23 other states had adopted Labor Day and and on June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year a national holiday. For many, Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and the start of school, the last official summer weekend followed by busy fall schedules and sports.
We hope you had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend! Maven's celebrated with family and friends, BBQ's, bonfires and beaches. And the LA crew working hard to help restore power and a sense of safety back to the communities impacted by Ida.
