“Labor Day” – History Channel Video

I always look forward to the long Labor Day weekend and always saw it as the official end of summer. Labor Day is actually a holiday and, in a series of short clips, The History Channel takes a look at the origins of Labor Day, changing methods of manufacturing and legislative gains made by labor unions. I just gave myself an education as to the history of Labor Day as more than just an end of summer holiday.

Enjoy your Labor Day holiday weekends!
