Some people often spend the holiday with their families, maybe firing up the grill. But what is Labor Day all about?
The first Labor Day was celebrated on September 5, 1882. This holiday was proposed by Mathew Maguire to celebrate the "working man's holiday."
Many workers, even students, feel the day off is well deserved.
Heavenly Hines, a student, said, "I work really hard. I have so much homework during the week and school's really tough too, so I think I really do deserve this, and so it's really cool."
Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September every year in both the United States and Canada.
