On Labor Day, we celebrate the workers of America

The first Monday of September for so many of us means no work. It’s the final hurrah of the summer before the season shifts toward the end of the month. However, today is actually all about work. With this holiday, we pay respect to the American worker. 

The labor movement, as explained by the U.S. Department of Labor, created Labor Day to highlight social and economic achievements of U.S. laborers. But how can you really celebrate the American worker? If you’re an employer, that might mean paying employees a livable wage and offering appropriate benefits. But for consumers, support looks a little different. 

The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) says purchasing “Union-Made in America” is one way to show solidarity— plus it promotes good jobs across the country. Below we’ve compiled all your union-made needs.
