“Infographic: Labor Day By The Numbers”

On this Labor Day weekend, we took a look at the state of the American workforce—including who loves their jobs, who hates their jobs, and where the workforce is going.

The first observance of Labor Day was likely on September 5, 1882, when some 10,000 workers assembled in New York City for a parade. That gathering inspired similar events across the country. In 1894, Congress passed legislation and President Grover Cleveland signed the bill on June 29, making the first Monday in September “Labor Day.”
