Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. Initially created and promoted by American trade unions, it constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
We at the Peace Corps Union very much hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend!
