The first Monday of September is our national holiday set aside to recognize the contributions and achievements of America’s labor movement and trade unions. Labor Day began as a parade in New York City, but Oregon was the first state to make it a public holiday in 1887. By the time Congress made it a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states had already begun celebrating its workers.
TheOUTfront would like to celebrate all the sweaty, hardworking men. If it’s a dirty job, we love watching them do it.
