Labor Day in the United States is a public holiay celebrated on the first
Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the
contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and
well-being of the country. It is considered the unofficial end of summer.

In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the U.S.to make it an official public
holiday
. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S.
states
officially celebrated Labor Day.
