How does MLB schedule teams with a day off on labor day?

The schedule is an impossible jigsaw puzzle.

There are a lot of rules about travel and frequency of off days that make it incredibly complicated.

You can't play more than 20 days in a row without an off day. You also can't travel from the west coast to the east coast without an off day.

In this case, if you look at the Astros schedule, they are already off on Thursday. So if this series went Monday and Tuesday they'd have 2 days off.

I wouldn't say it is impossible.  More like a pain-in-the-ass jigsaw puzzle. They manage to come up with a 162-game sked every year.
