Signed into law by President Grover Cleveland in 1894, Labor Day is a celebration of the achievements of American workers. It is a special day that pays tribute to the contributions that millions of working men and women have made to the abundance and well-being of our nation.
I hope that you and your families take some time from your work today to be with your families. As you do, I encourage you to take a few moments to remember and honor workers all across America.
Happy Labor Day!
