Did you know...
- Labor Day was first observed September 5, 1882 in New York City, with a parade of 10,000 workers thought to be organized by Peter J. McGuire, a Carpenters and Joiners Union secretary.
- Congress and President Grover Cleveland passed a bill to establish Labor Day as a federal holiday in 1894.
So, other than having a great excuse to take a long weekend and have an end-of-summer barbecue, why do we celebrate Labor Day?
Thought you'd never ask.
- We celebrate the 154.4 milion people over age 16 that comprise our country's work force.
- We celebrate the 83% of fulltime workers covered by health insurance.
- We celebrate the 78% of private industry workers who receive a paid vacation as one of their benefits.
- We celebrate moonlighters, self-employed workers and independent contractors.
Here at Rich's, we celebrate all our employees and vendors -- the many people who faithfully serve at our five Puget Sound-area stores. We are so grateful to you!
We're especially thankful to you, our valued customer, for choosing to shop at Rich's.
