Happy Labor Day from SMART TD

September 2, 2019

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 after President Grover Cleveland signed it into law to appease angry union workers following a railroad labor strike that President Cleveland sent armed troops in to break up. More than a dozen workers were killed.
More information is available from National Public Radio, The History Channel or here from the U.S. Department of Labor.
SMART Transportation Division wishes all members and their families a safe and happy Labor Day!
