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.
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. By the year 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement.
