Labor Day Weekend
When you’re reading this, it’s likely not Monday, September 5, because that’s the Labor Day holiday when your financial institution is closed.
Labor Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1894, when the U.S. Congress unanimously passed the legislation and President Grover Cleveland signed it. The legislation was rushed through the system to appease the labor movement after a strike where workers died.

It seems ironic that we celebrate labor by not working, but the idea is to reflect on our collective accomplishments.
Hope your holiday was restful and fun and now you’re ready to get back to the days of labor ahead of you.
