What’s Open, Closed in Belmont on Labor Day


The Labor Day holiday is the last great get away weekend of the summer and Belmont has all but emptied out. 

Labor Day is one of ten holidays recognized by the federal government, although it doesn’t require employers to pay workers for this holiday. Businesses traditionally provide their employees with a paid holiday as part of a benefits package because most firms do the same. But it is reported that for more than 40 percent of workers, today is just another day on the job.
