Labor Day 2019


Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American Labor Movement (Labor Unions) and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.

The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes,
but also by the aggregate of tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller

A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor
and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.
- Grover Cleveland

There is no hope for the workingman outside of organization.
- Peter J. McGuire, co-founder of the American Federation of Labor
        and reported "father" of the American Labor Day holiday

The labor movement means just this: it is the last noble protest of the American people against the power of incorporated wealth.
 - Wendell Phillips

There is magic in respecting others.
Respect customers, vendors, bosses, employees, co-workers.
Respect parents, spouses, sons, daughters.
Respect the trash collector, the mayor, the bank teller, the truck driver.
 - Jonathan Lockwood Huie
