Why does the US celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday of September?
May 1 as Labor Day - 'The date originated in the American trade-union movement. In the United States, labor agreements were dated starting May 1. For three years, from 1885 to 1888, American labor unions went on strike on that date in an effort to establish the right to an 8-hour workday. The idea spread internationally, and the date is now a national holiday in France, England, Russia, and elsewhere. Meanwhile, in the United States, the national workers' day was moved to the first Monday in September, and is called Labor Day.' 'May Day, the international workers' day, and the American Labor Day are traditionally marked by parades with slightly militant overtones and festive public parties and picnics that owe something to older spring and harvest celebrations. At one time May 1 was a day of mass demonstrations, speeches, and political activism; in the old Soviet Union it was the great national holiday, with immense military displays.' That is why the American holiday was moved, to distance it from the Soviet holiday. I don't know whether it was moved by suggestion of the American labor movement itself or by the American government alone. I've always thought that it sucks that we don't get May Day, but I realized a few years ago that our Memorial Day at the end of May serves the same purpose, and this way we get a holiday (for some) in September that we would not have otherwise.
