Americans Honor the ‘Labor’ in Labor Day

For Americans, Labor Day’s a split decision: A day to honor the worker but also the end of summer.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 20% of American Adults consider Labor Day one of our nation’s most important holidays. Sixteen percent (16%) say it’s one of the least important, while 60% rate it somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
