The first Labor Day ever


WORLD'S FIRST LABOR DAY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

When was the world's first Labor Day?

Both Peter J. McGuire and Matthew Maguire have been credited with proposing the idea of Labor Day to celebrate the working man  and recent findings tend to lean in favor of Matthew Maguire.

The first labor day was organized by the Central Labor Union and held on Tuesday September 05 1882, in New York City.

In 1883 Labor Day was once again held on September 05.

In 1884 it was decided that the first Monday in September would be a holiday.

In 1894 Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.
