We love our employees. We can't say enough of that. That is why we are happy to give them all a day off (of course we are required to) on Monday, September 3rd, 2018.
As we celebrate, don't forget to research why we celebrate Labour Day and thank your employees for all their hard work.
But why do we celebrate Labour Day? According to Public Holidays Global:
The origins of the Canadian Labour day can be found in an 1872 printers’ revolt in Toronto. The printers of the city were actively trying to establish a maximum workweek of 54 hours. In the late 19th century, however, unions were not legal in Canada, and anyone who organised labour groups was sent to jail. The protests against this legislation were so massive that the Prime Minister was forced to repeal the anti-union laws and release the union organisers from jail.
Workers across the country began to celebrate the release of the union organizers and their newfound right to organise and self-govern by trade. Parades were held throughout the country every year, and the celebrations were so widespread that the first Monday in September was adopted as Labour Day in the year 1894 by the Parliament residing under Prime Minister John Thompson.
