The holiday has come to symbolize the end of summer and typically represents the ‘back to school’ season. Labor Day has also become a day to celebrate with alcohol. Often alcohol is present at get-togethers and parties without a second thought, but ends up being consumed by underage youth.

This Labor Day please remember that providing a place and allowing youth to consume alcohol is not only dangerous and irresponsible, but it is also against the law.
