US Labor Day is just a few days away. As members of the workforce, we can say that this special day is the best time of the year not only to commemorate our works, achievements, and contribution to both the economy and the society but also to give honor to the American labor movement.
But Labor Day is more than that! Here are a few fun facts about the US Labor Day that you might not have known yet.

The Labor Day Weekend is traditionally known as the unofficial end of the summer season. Since its a long weekend, families and friends use this opportunity to gather not only to celebrate the US Labor Day but also to catch up with the final days of the summer season. Families across the country engage in various outdoor activities like having a barbeque party, swimming, going on a picnic, and enjoying sporting events.
