Centennial Celebration
On March 4, 2013, the Department of Labor celebrated its 100th anniversary, commemorating the department’s creation and the addition of a Cabinet seat by President Taft. The first successful attempt by U.S. politicians to grant American workers governmental representation, Taft’s signature paved the way for many worker protections to come, including laws ensuring workplace safety and wage protections still relevant to modern-day Americans.
