Labor Day 2018 Sale: Origin, History and Progress

Labor Day takes place on the first Monday of every September. It is a wonderful weekend near the end of Summer for one last huzzah with family and friends! Meet a buddy at the local brewery or head to the beach with the family before school starts back up. All kinds of sales and promotions spring up, such as our very own Labor Day Sale, both locally in our showrooms and online! However, are you aware of just why this wonderful three-day weekend is celebrated and how it came to be?

Labor Day pays homage to the U.S. worker. It was founded in 1894 to honor and commemorate advancements in workers’ rights. Due to unfair, unsafe and frankly cruel working environments and conditions of the late 19th century, employees of the American Railway Union (ARU) boycotted and began a strike. Shortly thereafter, riots and protests broke out across the railroads of the United States. Ultimately, 37 people were killed and 57 more were injured. To restore peace, the intervention of the US Army was eventually required.

Due to the protests of ARU employees and many more labor and social movements that followed, we have advanced and integrated the rights and privileges of workers both in America and beyond, scaling to a worldwide increase in labor laws, fair trade agreements and most importantly, the improved safety of workers.

This Labor Day, we here at Epoch by Design want to honor the U.S. worker as well, and offer our heirloom-quality, built to last and beautiful furniture to the American public at a very affordable price.
