Now we celebrate the history of labor, our American culture, and the American worker by having the first Monday of September off from work. 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.
