Here's your answer, Bob, so I guess we can assume so long as it's been a federal holiday, it's been on a Monday.

June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday.

I'm not sure Bob but I'll take the extra day off today to catch up on a few things.  Plus AR is super slow this morning, I'm not going to retype my answer again.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [a]He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [b]comprehend it....

14 And the Word became flesh, and [k]dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of [l]the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The original Labor Day was in May, celebrating a protest effort in support of over worked, under pain laborers.  The USA was not the first to celebrate Labor Day.

The origins of Labour Day can be traced back to April 15, 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organized Canada's first significant demonstration for worker's rights.

US wants to be different from Communist version of May day, the labor day by President Cleveland.  IKE tried it to call May day as Law Day unsuccessfully as I recall.

Looks like Nina beat me to it, but yes, since it was made a federal holiday, it has been Monday. There was no shortage of those trying to politicize yesterday here in NH with all the presidential candidates clogging the roads.

As man was never meant to labor but supervise (steward) today we have turned laboring into 4 day holidays along with other days to even things out
