A Different Type of Labor Day 2020!

The First Labor Day celebration was held in New York City in 1882 to highlight the growing accomplishments of American workers. Two years later, the United States Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September a legal holiday.  Since 1884, labor unions and American businesses, big and small, have honored American workers for the strength, prosperity and well-being they provide to America’s economy.

Normally, there were Labor Day celebrations with parades, picnics and rallies to unite workers and promote Jobs and Job Skills in the United States. This year because of the coronavirus pandemic that originated in China, major public community events have been cancelled.

Since mid-March 2020, American workers have experienced a great deal of stress due to unemployment and the associated difficulties of supporting themselves and their families. This is another reason we continue to urge America’s consumers to focus their purchases in support of America’s businesses who are struggling to keep workers employed or restoring jobs because so many businesses were closed down as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Your support for Made in the U.S.A. products prior to the pandemic helped keep more of our hard-earned dollars circulating here in the United States and keep American workers employed. Our goal is to get more Americans back on the job as soon as possible, but it’s going to take all of America’s consumers to join the Buy American Made Campaign.

Thanks for your participation. Kindly email this message to your family and friends.
