this year marks the 120th anniversary of labor day. many americans are celebrating the unofficial end of summer with backyard barbecues, beach getaways, shopping. we're celebrating here on the set with you this morning, anthony and i. but many of us have really lost sight of the real significance behind this national holiday.
7:14 am
kenneth davis is the author of "don't know much about history." welcome back to studio 57. >> good morning. >> good morning. people sort of check this off as a long weekend, but what is this day really about? >> well it started off with a picnic in new york city in 1882 but this is a time when labor and work was no picnic. we're talking about a time when people were six-day weeks, 12-hour days. there were no laws against child labor. labor in the late 19th century was hard dirty, difficult and dangerous. and every attempt to organize into unions was usually met with resistance. sometimes military resistance from the federal government. so it was a very difficult time to be a worker in america. >> so why did the government put that first monday in september on the calendar as a celebration? >> well it was meant, first of all, in 1882 to become a day to work for fair wages, fair working conditions the end of
7:15 am
child labor, and the government resisted that for that whole time. in 1894 there was a very violent strike against the pullman car company. six days after that strike ended because they used federal troops to put it down and a dozen workers died president cleveland signed a labor day law into act. it was kind of a bone tossed to the working people of america. we're not going to give you the hours and things that you want but we'll give you a day off. >> so it was a political act but it was a result of something that had been building for more than a decade. >> it had been building more than a decade. really 20 years, from the end of the civil war to the turn of the 20th century, there was another civil war in america, the war between working people and the companies that they worked for. >> it was a battle for really the five-day workweek and the eight-hour work day. >> those were the immediate goals. of course they weren't realized on a national level until 1938 under the great depression under
7:16 am
fdr. that's when we first have child labor laws that end child labor in america. we're not talking about kids delivering newspapers and shining shoes. these were kids working in the mines and the factories, doing the dirtiest work going in the smallest places in coal mines. so when we think about labor day today, it's a holiday, we enjoy it, we have the barbecue but it was really about a period of tremendous blood, sweat and tears in american history that we don't teach in our history books. >> and you say there's actually even real significance to the fact you're not -- the idea you're not supposed to wear white after today. >> i see none of us is wearing white. i have a little. who could wear white in the summertime back then? well, you could only wear white if you were wealthy enough to really not have to work. working people didn't wear white so it was the kind of thing that you went away to the summer resort if you were of the class that could afford to do that. so there was very strict class distinctions about who could wear white. then the fashion industry caught on and said well after labor
7:17 am
day when you've been wearing white all summer because you can afford to we're going to have you buy some other fashion. so it was really a class difference that lingered for a long time until it became a fashion statement. >> it was about who could afford to have a different wardrobe. >> that's right. >> always fascinating. thanks for being with us. >> enjoy your labor day. >> you too. he gave up the dream of four wheels for a pair of wings. how a teen's lifelong passion took him on an historic journey. that's next on "cbs this morning." this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. he insisted on using the rain to save water. fourteen years ago, i insisted on buying our first prius. because like toyota, we both know there's a way to do things, and a way to do things even better. the prius. toyota, let's go places.

7:24 am
not pressurized and does not have oxygen. you have a fairly low creel. you can't fly above clouds. >> plus, with a bunch of fuel it's hard to get up. >> shortly before that a student died after he crashed his plane after what guthmiller called the most difficult leg of his own journey. he flew from the same air strip and said the takeoff is challenge because of the heavy fuel load needed for the 16-hour stretch. in spite of the risks and've a fear of heights guthmiller succeeded in breaking the record and making money. he started his tech goal at the age of 12 and his goals are sky high. >> i think it would be cool to start the next apple but we'll see how that goes. >> aiming high right? >> yeah. i guess that's how i look at everything. shoot for the stars, you get

7:39 am
and cortisol drops. scientists discovered that the brain prefers the color blue above all others and water increases our ability to focus. >> we look at this it's not that it's beautiful. we're having a biological reaction to it. >> our response to water is deep, it's human, it's about life and it's about survival. >> in fact our bodies consist of about 60% water and our brains a whopping 75%. >> so when you see water and you hear water, it triggers a response from your brain that you're in the right place. >> now from rafting to kayaking to surfing, water therapy is increasingly being used to treat a variety of ailments. including wounded veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. >> so is your ultimate hope that we look at the ocean not simply a beautiful place to visit and a food source but a public health
