Labor Day – a day marked on calendars across the U.S., symbolizing rest, relaxation, and the unofficial end of summer. But amidst the backyard barbecues and the last of the summer sales, it's essential to remember the real reason behind this federal holiday: to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the country.
The Roots of Labor Day
The history of Labor Day traces back to the late 19th century. At the height of the Industrial Revolution, an average American worker worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks just to make a basic living. Despite age restrictions in some states, children as young as 5 or 6 worked in factories, mines, and mills across the country.
But, over time, the labor union movement began to grow, and they vocalized the issues of workers and organized strikes and rallies for better wages, reasonable hours, and safer working conditions. Labor Day came into being as a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the prosperity, strength, and well-being of our country.
A Fashionable Spin on Labor Day
Today, Labor Day is not just about honoring the hardworking individuals of our nation; it's also an excellent time for fashion enthusiasts! As we transition from summer to fall, the holiday presents a unique opportunity to both look back at the summer trends we loved and to look forward to the upcoming fall styles.
