Why can't Americans celebrate labor day with the rest of the workers worldwide on May 1?

From Wikipedia: Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

Those workers were obviously wealthy capitalists, fighting the oppressive marginal tax rates that Uncle Sam was imposing on them.

April thirtieth, the souls of the risen are leading the way The first of May, black magic night witches holiday Their torches glow, eternal evil, it summons the lords of hell
Just once a year compel and beware the spell of the jackal Can't break the spell, won't break the spell The spell of the shadowless man
Along witches fornicate, the demons dance, black mass romance In hellish praise 'round Brocken they prance Their numbers grow
A harpie chants, fire fountains glow, virgin of snow burnt By the torch of the one with no shadow, I saw his face I've seen him before, the face of the shadowless man
As dawn breaks through the trees, lonely town falls to their knees A solemn belfry begins to toll, the mass begins sing familiar hymns Man in black has his back to the crowd Spreads his wings and turns around, as my heart begins to pound
Because you, you're the one I saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night You've betrayed and cursed the light at Walpurgis Night You're the one I saw in flight at Walpurgis Night At the setting of the sun
Because you, you're the one I saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night You've betrayed and cursed the light at Walpurgis Night You're the one I saw in flight at Walpurgis Night At the setting of the sun

/May Day

Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success.

So on Labor Day we honor everyone who created a business that had no employees?
