Wednesday is sign in day.
Matthew Maguire, while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York, proposed a Labor Day Holiday. The first Labor Day Holiday was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The idea spread and by 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.
