Labor Day, A Salute to American Workers!

In 1882, the first Labor Day Holiday was celebrated in New York City. The celebration was so popular that two years later in 1884, the United States Congress authorized a special act designating the First Monday in September as Labor Day.

It became a legal holiday which urged all Americans to recognize the accomplishments of American workers, the businesses that employed them and the strength, prosperity and financial well-being jobs provide for American workers and America’s economy.

As we observe Labor Day, I urge you to support the businesses in America so they are able to maintain and expand their industries and service centers here in the U.S.A. We need more jobs for American workers so they have every opportunity possible to expand their skills and always be able to support themselves and their families. For over 30 years, we have lived in an era where long term employment opportunities have been outsourced across the globe and we need your help to reverse this reality. Directing more of your purchases to private sector businesses making and distributing products in the U.S.A. continues to create new jobs for working age and able bodied Americans.

I am pleased to report that your voices are being heard by business owners who continue to see that Americans are going out of their way to support products made in the United States of America and that consumers are willing to bypass stores that are not offering a reasonable selection of American Made products.

To help you spread the word, there is a Support American Workers promo on the front page of: Print it out for yourself and email it to friends to encourage them to support our campaign.
