Labor Day is the labor movement’s biggest day of the year. It honors the millions of workers who keep the country going. The day was created by the labor movement and became an official federal holiday in 1894. If you’re like many Americans, you’ll be celebrating with a friends and family with an outdoor BBQ. This is the perfect day to make it a union-made BBQ so that you can support good union jobs with every bite.
