Today is Labor Day in the United States, a day to celebrate the economic and social contributions and achievements of everyday workers. It also marks the unofficial end of summer
Oregon was the first state to recognize the holiday back in 1887. Before long other states jumped on board, and by 1894 Grover Cleveland signed the law making Labor Day an official federal holiday.
In modern times, Labor Day is best known as a day off from work, retailers slashing prices on their merchandise, and backyard barbeques. It is also one last chance to hit the beach before schools starts and the weather turns cold.
