History of Labor Day Holiday 

In the late 1800s, many Americans toiled 12 hours a day, seven days a week, often in physically demanding, low-paying jobs. Children worked too, on farms and in factories and mines. Conditions were often harsh and unsafe.

It was in this context that American workers held the first Labor Day parade, marching from New York’s City Hall to a giant picnic at an uptown park on Sept. 5, 1882. . . .

In recent decades, Labor Day has been dominated more by barbecues, sales and last-chance beach days than strident labor protests.

Please enjoy the day with your children! Of course, the Mount Olive Office will be open as usual from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM on the following day, Tuesday. The Preschool and the Child Care also will operate on their regular schedules on Tuesday.
