Almost 200 years ago, workers were putting in 60 and 70 hours over 7 days a week! Many workers were very unhappy with that and they worked hard to make their work time shorter. If you have ever wondered how standard 9-5 work hours 5 days a week began, now you know! Once the work days and weeks were shortened, people were able to spend their free time on traveling, entertainment, and eating out.
States started the holiday to celebrate this great achievement. In 1894, Congress made it a holiday. It is dedicated to American workers and their efforts since the country began. If you, your family, and friends have the day off, celebrate the many milestones the United States has achieved and what we hope to do in the future.
