Labor Day is an occasion marked by contradictions. Despite honoring the fight for workers’ rights, it’s a day off for most. Even though it represents the unofficial end of summer, it’s still among Americans’ favorite holidays. And while it isn’t known shopping, we still spend a lot on Labor Day weekend fun.
To get a better sense of what Labor Day means to American consumers as well as how we plan to celebrate this year and how we’re going to pay for it all, WalletHub conducted a nationally representative survey on the subject. The survey was done online from Aug. 7 to Aug. 14. You can check out the results below.
