Summer is winding down now and for some students, schoold is already underway.  My daughter, who is in her senior year of college, stated classes today!  Many Morris County schools will be starting next week, as Labor Day is monday.  Labor Day is always observed on the first monday of September. It was created to celebrate the economic and social contributions of the American worker.  It became a federal holiday in 1894 when President Grover Cleveland rushed it through Congress after the Pullman Strike.  The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday as "A street parade to exhibit to the public "the strenght and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations followed by a festival for the workers and their families.  In the 1950's nearly 50% of American workers belonged to a union.  Today only about 11% of workers are unionized.  So things have changed in the work force, but on Labor Day, we still see families coming together to celebrate the last days of summer.
