Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!

What started as a small idea to honor the working class, has since turned into a nationwide movement in which we pay tribute to the contributions that workers have made to our country.

But where does Labor Day come from?

Some believe it originated in New York in 1882, after a very successful public parade to celebrate the labor force.  Others are convinced that it did not come about until the early age of the Central Labor Union, a year later.

Believe it or not, no one really knows for sure.

However, there is one thing that we do know for certain.

Workers deserve recognition!

That is why at South Dakota 811, would like to take a special moment to thank all those hard-working individuals that make up our state’s labor force.

Whether you are an excavator, a teacher, or anything in between, it is the work that you do that has allowed our state to prosper.

At South Dakota 811 we believe that nothing honors our workforce more than keeping them safe.

So, help us carry on this well-earned tradition by making sure you contact us at 811 or through our Portal before beginning any excavation this fall.

Until next week, safe digging!
