Rasmussen Poll: Labor Day End of Summer for Most Americans

By    |   Monday, 01 Sep 2014 01:52 PM

The majority of Americans say that Labor Day signifies the unofficial end of summer, not the day to recognize the contribution of workers in society, according to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports.

Fifty-six percent of American adults say that they see Labor Day as the end of summer, with 28 percent saying they see it as a day to recognize workers around the country and 16 percent saying they aren't sure how they see Labor Day, according to poll results released Monday. The poll was taken Aug. 25 and 26 of 1,000 adults nationwide and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

The same poll found that only 17 percent of Americans think Labor Day is one of the most important holidays, 20 percent say they think it's one of the least important American holidays and 58 percent saying it's somewhere in between.

The same Rasmussen poll found that 42 percent of Americans took summer vacations, which is down 3 percentage points from 2013.

As it is becoming more common for academic school years to start in early to mid-August in school districts around the country, 51 percent of Americans say that the academic school year shouldn't start until after Labor Day and 38 percent say the school year should begin in August.
