Labor day, the First Monday of every September. The day we celebrate one of the greatest and best treated labor forces in the world. Do we here really understand how lucky we are and how grateful we should be to this force of people?
They build our homes, cars and trucks, they keep us safe and the streets clean, they are the waitress and bartenders that will serve our drinks while we say yeah it’s labor day. It is the day we say yes your skills and labor are appreciated whatever it is you do.
These are the people who help shape and move the economy when they are working. Why you ask? because when they are working they are buying and trading for goods that either built or service all the rest of us. We should appreciate the many city workers/laborers, but we should never set aside our skilled laborers who have built the buildings and stores in which we live , visit and play.
So when labor day comes to your town remember to say thanks to all the skilled and non-skilled laborers not just the union people and municipal workers. Remember there is always someone laboring to keep us safe or healthy and servicing our needs and wants some kind of way, even on this day of appreciation to those very people.
