The History of Labor Day

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – The first Monday in September, Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan’s Labor Day Message

 

City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – It seems like only a few days ago that we celebrated the beginning of summer and here we are reaching the end with the Labor Day holiday. We’ve accomplished a great deal over the past few months and I want to thank the Clarksville City employees for all they have done, and continue to do, to make our city great.

I am reminded of a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” I believe the people of Clarksville understand and illustrate this sentiment every day.
