Essentially, the holiday is a celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers.

We put together this list of Labor Day Freebies – lots of awesome Free Stuff you can score on Labor Day for 2013 – an extra little celebration for all the hardworking Americans who have made our country what it is today.
