Good work for Labor Day

Labor Day iconLabor Day arrives in early September, ushering in store sales, back-to-school, and the welcome chance for a day off from work. It’s also an opportunity to remember its origins, as a day to honor everyday workers.

In the United States of the early 1900s, working conditions in many places were hazardous and inhumane, and child labor was not uncommon. Organizing efforts to campaign for safe and humane conditions, fair wages and hours, and to end child labor, are part of what we celebrate with today’s Labor Day.

Here’s how CareerOneStop can help make this your best Labor Day ever:
