Labor Day serves as a celebration and recognition of the American labor moments and the economic achievements workers have reached.
History of Labor Day
Labor Day is a holiday that symbolizes the accomplishments labor movement in the 19th century achieved; before these movements, work conditions were harsh and insecure. On average Americans worked 12-hour shift and seven days a week, with minimum wages that barely cover the essentials. Condition where so hard that despite restrictions in many states, young age children (5 or 6 years old) were recruited to work in factories or mines across the country, but earn a fraction of the wages adults earned.
At the height of the Industrial Revolution, society notice a shift in the work environment, manufacturing increased supplanting agriculture; also with this movement new supports where instated, things like labor unions grew more prominent enabling them to offer better support their members.
