Just like the rest of 2020, Labor Day will be a Holiday like no other, during a year like no other. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.
