Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a day to recognize the contributions of American workers to the U.S. economy. It is also meant to give workers a well-earned day off. Labor Day marks end of the summer season. It’s the last chance to get out and take a vacation before summer is gone. Please be safe and enjoy the 3-day weekend.
