The first “labor day” assembly in America was held September 5, 1882, when roughly 10,000 working people marched in New York City to urge labor law reforms. Labor Day became a national holiday in 1894.
Nearly 50% of Americans work remotely at least some of the time. For those who do not work remotely, the average commute time nationwide is 26.6 minutes.
There was once a rule of fashion — still adhered to by some today — that white clothing and shoes should not be worn after Labor Day. This may have had its origin in the U.S. Navy, where dress whites were exchanged for dress blues after Labor Day.
