This year, Labor Day falls on Monday September 5, 2016.

What is Labor Day?

Labor Day is an annual workers' holiday on the first Monday in September. The first Labor Day was organized by the Central Labor Union of New York in 1882. Each year New York City also celebrates West Indian-American Day on Labor Day, with the West Indian Day Carnival.
