Summer is over and it is time to get back to work, school work that is. Labor means to work. President Grover Cleveland declared Labor Day to be the first Monday of September. Labor Day was first observed on September 5th, 1882.
Whether it is chores around your home, or a paying job, lots of kids work. Some kids baby sit, deliver newspapers, walk the family pet, mow the yard, or help at the local food panty. Jobs are important. All of these jobs are important because they contribute to society - kids do make a difference.
