Labour Day in the US

Published May 16, 2013 05:01am

THIS is apropos of the letter ‘Labour Day in US’ (May 6). For the general benefit, I would like to confirm that Labour Day is celebrated in the US on the first Monday of September, irrespective of the date. Labour Day is celebrated as a national holiday in the US. However, the day celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers to the American economy. Normally, the celebrations include parades and barbecues on the federal holiday.

Yesssss. They don't celebrate Labor Day with the rest of the world. They switch is turned down to switch the lights off unlike the rest of the world. They drive on the right unlike the rest of the world. They use pounds and miles unlike the rest of the world.
