Labor Day meaning: A brief history of the holiday and why we celebrate

Though it may be known as the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day is actually a time to celebrate the achievements of workers. 

Many employees get the federal holiday off from work — and many workers use the three-day weekend as a time to travel, while others host barbecues with friends and family.  

Although many workers get to enjoy the day, there are some employees who do not get the day off. 

Even though the rule is outdated, many still choose to follow it.
