Labor Day was first celebrated in 1882 as the “workingmen’s holiday,” and it serves as a way to honor the contributions that workers have added to America.

Throughout the history of Labor Day, workers have seen it as a chance to celebrate their accomplishments but also as an opportunity to air their grievances and advocate for better working conditions.

With Labor Day around the corner, we would like to hear about your experiences in the workforce.
