02 Sep Happy Labor Day!
Today, and every day, we celebrate the work ethic and dedication that our American work force displays to preserve the well-being of our country. Labor Day came about when workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job. In the 1830’s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Unions began to form and focused on winning shorter hours, more time off, and shorter work weeks. As we celebrate with fireworks, parades, and picnics, we keep in mind those serving our nation; Service members, Veterans, family members, and friends.
Happy Labor Day!
