Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day Chicago

Labor Day is here once again and as always, it’s bittersweet! The bitter part of Labor Day is that it (unofficially) marks the end of summer and the beginning of the new school year. However, let’s focus on the sweet part. Most of us get the day off from work and can spend it relaxing, barbecuing and having fun with our loved ones out in the sun! So, while you’re basking in the sunshine and noshing on some delectable treats this Labor Day, give your friends and family something to mull over and chew on with these fun facts about the holiday!

  • Labor Day originated in Toronto, Canada in 1872. It began as a demonstration demanding rights for workers.
  • The first celebrated U.S. Labor Day was on Tuesday, September 5, 1882 in NYC. It was planned by the Central Labor Union. 10,000 workers took unpaid leave and marched from City Hall to 42nd street – ending in Wendel’s Elm Park for a concert, picnic, and speeches.
  • In the late 1800s, Americans worked 12-hour days and 7-day weeks! Children as young as 5 years old worked in factories. The 8-hour workday was established in 1916 by the passing of the Adamson Act.
  • Many countries around the world celebrate workers on May Day or International Workers Day on May 1.
  • In 2010, the median earnings for full time workers were $36,931 for women and $47,715 for men.
  • As of July 2014, there were about 156 million Americans in the civilian labor force in the United States.

With that in mind, have a fun and safe holiday! Maybe we’ll see you at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare?

Summer is slowly coming to a close and for most of us that means going back to work, school or both. We’ll be going back to all those responsibilities, duties and chores. So, when you go back this fall, will you have anything to remember this summer by? If the answer is no, how about doing something that you will remember forever? It’s something good for others, good for you and something you’ll remember for a lifetime! Sounds interesting, right? Let’s read on then, shall we?

The last true Chicagoland race of 2014 is taking place at the Ballpark at Rosemont on Saturday, August 30th (Labor Day weekend). The BADASS Dash has 30 obstacles sprawled over a 7K course.
