What started as a Printer’s strike ended up changing Canadian Law and the workers won their right to a 9-hour workday. A few years later the head of the American Federation of Labor was in Toronto speaking at a labor festival and came back to US and organized a Labor Parade which eventually the Central Labor Union turned into Labor Day on September 5, 1882 in New York. In 1894 it became a Federal Holiday.
So, if it weren’t for the PRINT INDUSTRY in another country, you wouldn’t be having this nice 3-day weekend.
Priceless Ink & Toner wishes you a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!
