Fun Labor Day Facts
- Labor Day was declared a national holiday in 1894 and is observed on the first Monday in September.
- The roots of Labor Day grew out of violent clashes between labor and police during the Haymarket Riot in 1886, when thousands of workers in Chicago took to the streets to demand an eight-hour workday.
- Today, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, but worker-oriented Labor Day parades and festivities are still part of the federal holiday.
- In recent years, parades were canceled due to the pandemic, although many are resuming in 2022.
