Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.

In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.  These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour work day. They also focused on getting workers more da ...
