Labor Day has become the unofficial last day of summer; the last extended weekend for families to get together before Thanksgiving. And in our commercial world, it has also become a big weekend for store sales. But Labor Day has its roots in a far more noble cause. Labor Day marks the creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of the American workers. It is a yearly tribute to the contributions of the many individuals who have made our country strong and prosperous.
