You already know that Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday of September, and that the national holiday pays tribute to the efforts of American workers from all walks of life. You might even know that the very first Labor Day was celebrated on September 5, 1882. Labor Day came out of the labor unions movement and was originally filled with parades, speeches and newspaper testimonials. Over the years, Americans have come to see Labor Day as a relaxing day off (cocktails, anyone?) and the end cap for summer. In that spirit, we created a little quiz to test your savvy for Labor Day 2013. You’ll find the answers at the bottom of the quiz.
