Monday is Labor Day, the American holiday of the worker. On the first Monday each September since 1894, Americans have celebrated the social and economic achievements of the American worker - things like the eight-hour workday, the minimum wage, the prohibition against child labor and basic workplace safety requirements. Of course, it's also a day off for most workers - we celebrate labor by not working.
