When is Labor Day?

In the United States and Canada, however, the official holiday for workers is celebrated in September. After the Haymarket Square riot in May, 1886, US President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the riots. Thus he moved in 1887 to support the Labor Day that the anti-anarchist union the Knights of Labor supported.
