Fact Check: Commies Didn’t Invent Holidays

This is a classic example of the left trying to take credit for something for which they had nothing to do with.

According to this image, the idea of having the day off from work for a special observance comes from the labor movement — an umbrella term used to describe leftist reform movements which arose during the tail end of the industrial revolution at the end of the 19th century.

While leftist movements have certainly succeeded in branding their politics on holidays such as Labor Day, the idea that they somehow own time off from work is horribly misleading.

The modern weekend, for example, is actually a capitalist invention. Henry Ford, who pioneered the world-renowned automobile company which bears his last name, also had a hand in creating the 8-hour work day as well as weekends.

Such moves were done to attract higher quality workers who would be willing to remain loyal to respective companies. Perhaps this is a concept leftists are unfamiliar with.
