Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day in United States of America is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday of September.

It is also called an “unofficial end of summer”, because it marks the end of summer.

Please enjoy this day if you can.

 

I searched online and found some old pictures about the workers:
