You have got to be kidding me. Talk about a complete misreading of the history of our Labor Day, made all the more perplexing by the fact that Wikipedia has two reasonably good (though sadly short) entries under Labor Day and (as previously mentioned by Rekhan) Pullman Strike. If you really read either of those entries as "celebrating the suppression of a labour union," then I don't think we're reading remotely the same version of history.
