Labor Day Message from NYS Comptroller DiNapoli
On the first Monday in September each year, we gather to honor the contributions that American workers have made to our country’s economic strength, cultural vitality and democratic way of life. The tradition of celebrating Labor Day began in New York City in 1882 and quickly spread throughout the country; the U.S. Congress passed a law establishing Labor Day as a federal holiday in 1894. Then as now, people marked the occasion with parades and picnics, savoring the last days of summer in the company of friends and family.
As we pause from our own labors this September 2nd, we have an opportunity to reflect on all that working men and women have achieved through the generations in building this nation we love. I wish you all a joyful and refreshing Labor Day.
