Labor Day History

Labor day is in a little under two weeks away, and the end of summer is fast approaching. Kids are going back to school, the weather is cooling down, and people are cracking out the bar-b-qs for one last huzzah. Since next week is already spoken for with a guest post, I'll crack out this infographic a bit early. Alas, the history of labor in the US, and many countries of the first world, is sorted and dark in patches, something that we miss in the revelry of 2014.  I hope shining a bit of light on the history of the holiday educates and gives you something to think on. I firmly believe that those who don't know history will be doomed to repeat it.
