A very happy labor day to everyone! According to the United States of labor, this day “is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Although the holiday has become a reminder it is the end of summer and start of the football season, I try to remember the reasoning behind it. Depending on what you currently think of unions now, our current working conditions would most likely be very different if unions did not fight hard for the working rights of Americans.
A very safe holiday for those who are celebrating and sorry to those that have to work today!
