Labor Day

Last updated on November 22nd, 2017 at 04:14 pm

JR Language would like to wish a fun, happy and relaxed Labor Day to all our clients and friends in the translation business! The hard work and dedication of our project managers, translators and, interpreters inspires us to improve every day and provide better translation, localization and, interpretation services.

As an interesting fact, the International Worker’s Day, which is celebrated on May 1st, often gets confused with Labor Day, which the United States and Canada celebrates the first Monday of September. The origins of the International Worker’s Day date back to the 1886’s Haymarket affair in Chicago when workers assembled demanding an 8-hour workday. Labor Day, on the other hand, was established by President Grover Cleveland in 1887 as a way to show his support to the Knights of Labor, the largest and most important American labor organization of the 1880’s.

Pay tribute to those who fought before us so we can all enjoy better labor conditions and take a day off!
