Move Over Monday: Labor Day

Move Over Monday

Labor Day. BBQs. Pools. End of Summer. Rounding down into a Presidential election and the World Series. Epitome of Americana. Check out Explore.org’s Classic Americana photo album. These iconic photos take us across a pictorial road trip of the western United States.

More than 100 years since its founding, “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country” (U.S. Dept. of Labor).

Happy Labor Day everyone.
