September 4: Newspaper Carrier Day

This day commemorates the hiring of the very first newspaper carrier, 10 year old Barney Flaherty. On September 10, 1833, Benjamin Day, publisher of The New York Sun, hired Flaherty to sell papers for his penny press. The only job requirement was that he had to show that he could throw a newspaper into the bushes.

Do you know which state was the first to make Labor Day an actual holiday?

Oregon in 1887
