Labor Day became a national holiday in 1894… in response to the Pullman Strike between the American Railway Union and employees of the Pullman Palace Car Company, which resulted in $80 million in damages and 30 deaths. Employees went on strike due to the current economic depression at the time (the Panic of 1893), which saw them get their wages cut while their company-owned housing refused to reduce their rent. A lot has changed since then – we now think of Labor Day as just another day-off, a three-day weekend to round-out the summer, an indication that school is starting, and the final day to wear white until Memorial Day. Not to mention, these days, most companies strive to improve the conditions, morale and overall well-being of their workforce rather than exploit it.
