No one deserves a break more than you do! Labor Day is more than what marks the end of summer, it is when we celebrate the contributions made by American workers to the nation’s growth and development. On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march in New York City in what was essentially the first Labor Day parade. The US Congress made it a national holiday in 1894. According to the Dept of Labor as of July 2019, there are more than 160 million people that make up the civilian labor force in the US. Either kick your feet up and relax or take the day to celebrate with friends and family and make sure to enjoy your well deserved day off. If you are planning on traveling or staying home and entertaining, here are a few ways to stay safe on this holiday weekend.
For a lot of people, Labor Day weekend is their last chance to take their summer vacation. Many people take to the congested highways and roads. Here are some driving tips:
- Always wear seatbelts.
- Put the cellphone away so it cannot be a distraction.
- Never drink and drive.
- Report law enforcement if you encounter a drunk driver.
- Be patient. A lot of people are traveling this weekend.
So many Americans love to grill out for the last time before the summer is officially over. Here are some grilling safety tips:
- Never grill in the garage or anywhere inside.
- Keep children away from grills.
