By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, Labor Day was already being officially celebrated by nearly thirty states. The concept was introduced in America in 1882 – 130 years ago – by union leaders to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements, both socially and economically, of the American workers. This day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with picnics, parades and a host of events – many by pools, lakes and beaches to enjoy the last vestiges of summer.
So, while you are enjoying this last summer holiday – and thinking about having a day off of work – we want to remind you that the time you are spending today is precious. Spend it wearing a great watch made by workers in America from brands such as RGM, Towson and Bozeman.
