Americans Honor Workers This Labor Day

More Americans are celebrating the “labor” in Labor Day this year.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 20% of American Adults consider Labor Day to be one of our nation’s most important holidays. Sixteen percent (16%) view it as one of the least important holidays, while 60% rate it somewhere in between. These attitudes have changed very little in surveys for years.
