Facts and figures for Labor Day 2021

Labor Day Poster 2021 US Department of Labor What are your plans for Labor Day this year?

Americans are more confident about celebrating Labor Day in 2021, with 48 percent more people planning to travel and 24 percent more planning to go shopping,” according to a survey conducted for WalletHub, a personal finance website.

“This makes sense considering that last year lockdowns were in effect across the country and Americans were not able to have large gatherings, while this year most COVID-related restrictions have been removed," said Jill Gonzalez, WalletHub analyst.

The increase in travel and spending plans is also encouraging news for businesses, as they will likely see a big revenue boost and, as a result, will be able to hire more, said Gonzalez.

Fifty-three percent of Americans plan to get out of town for Labor Day, with 37 percent of them traveling by car.
