The holiday’s founders in the late 1800s envisioned something very different from what the day has become. The founders were looking for two things: a means of unifying union workers and a reduction in work time.

So eventually it just became a socialist dystopian plot in government. Where mediocre employees receive the same pay as those who excel. Crappy employees are never even fired.

Why do educators need a union and strike?
It's not for the  "children", I can tell you that.

Instead, this labor day, we're going to celebrate the sheer number of jobs and opportunities created by Trump administration.

Thanks Pullman workers for going on strike.

Quote:It had started when the Pullman Palace Car Company lowered wages without lowering rents in the company town, also called Pullman. (It’s now part of Chicago.)

When angry workers complained, the owner, George Pullman, had them fired. They decided to strike, and other workers for the American Railway Union, led by the firebrand activist Eugene V. Debs, joined the action. They refused to handle Pullman cars, bringing freight and passenger traffic to a halt around Chicago. Tens of thousands of workers walked off the job, wildcat strikes broke out, and angry crowds were met with live fire from the authorities.

During the crisis, President Grover Cleveland signed a bill into law on June 28, 1894, declaring Labor Day a national holiday. Some historians say he was afraid of losing the support of working-class voters.
