Exploring how work works for us

Work is such a big part of our lives but when do we take time to talk about our work and what it means to us? Labor Day gives us a chance to have those conversations. We hope these resources will help!


Please take a few minutes before your Labor Day meal or celebration to read our simple ceremony with your group. Print it out or use your smartphones. Find the connections between your life today and Labor Day's original purpose. Remembering why we have this holiday lets us make important discoveries about our country and ourselves.



Try these suggestions to make your Labor Day picnic or cookout more fun and memorable.



Enjoy the songs and poem we've selected or choose something else you find that's related to work. A sing-along is always fun.
