Happy Labor Day from Sign2Day marketing companyLabor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer. We hope it was a great time of year and hope the fall is even better. We know this time of year can be hectic, but it’s also the time of year when business heats up. Service industry folks scramble to get as much work in before mid November. Retailers are pushing to get as much sold as possible before Dec. 25th. But no matter which category you fall into, you need to push your brand in front of consumers. We can help with your marketing needs that will drive cash flow and get you set to roll into 2019.

Another thing we love at this time of year is a good set of trivia questions. Well, that may not be completely true, but we do have some great facts about the Labor Day holiday. And while most know that Labor Day in the United States is celebrated on the first Monday in September, many might not know it honors the American labor movement, which brought strength, prosperity and well-being to our country. There are currently about 157 million people above the age of 16 in the country’s workforce.

This year’s holiday is Monday, September 3rd.
