What Texomans do on Labor Day
SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - Many people enjoy the extra day off.
The first Monday of September is marked as Labor Day.
The federal holiday is a long-time celebration of America’s Labor Movement of the 19th century, and a recognition to workers contributions to the country. Workers faced long hours, low wages, and unsafe conditions. So, Labor Unions began to organize strikes and rallies to protest, according to History.Com .
Some Texomans said that they spend the day with family doing activities like walking, swimming, grilling, etc.
“Have fun as a family for a few hours before sunset, then eat something and [they’re] good.”
“[They] try to take it easy and spend time with family and just enjoy having a four day weekend.”
For many across the nation, Labor Day weekend also marks the official end of summer.
