History of Labor Day - Texana Bank's Nationwide Mortgage Origination

How did "Happy Labor Day" begin?

 

The idea of Labor Day was the brainchild of Peter J. McGuire (pictured above), who proposed a "general holiday for the laboring classes" in the spring of 1882.  He also recommended the event should begin with a street parade as a public demonstration of organized labor's solidarity and strength, with the march followed by a picnic.  And he believed the first Monday in September as an ideal date for the celebration, owing to optimum weather and the date's place on the calendar, sitting midway between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving holidays.

 

In 1887, Oregon became the first state to make Labor Day an official public holiday.  By the end of the year Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York followed. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty U.S. states officially celebrated Labor Day.  And 20 years later, Texana Bank first opened its doors in 1914 in Linden, Texas!
