Do you know what Labor Day actually stand for? And why you have this day off every day? We have working men and women to thank for this National Holiday. Labor Day is the annual celebration of workers and their achievements originated during one of American labor history’s most dismal chapters. In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in the pursuit of basic living.
On this Labor Day, we'd like to celebrate some of the powerful women etching a new path and stepping up into executive roles. Here are six of the CEO's and COO's leading the way and inspiring us on this Labor Day.
