But is it the same in the USA? Do people celebrate the same things on this specific day?

No. Observed on the first Monday in September, America’s Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.
