Best wishes on Labor Day

Flag Labor Day scm05082Many people see Labor Day as the last change to enjoy summer fun.

About 64 percent of Americans are barbecuing today, and 37 percent of Americans are taking a trip by car, according to a survey by WalletHub, a personal finance website.  

But Labor Day is more than parties and street parades. It’s the day to recognize the contributions of American workers. Labor Day was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

In his Labor Day proclamation for 2021, President Joe Biden said:

Hard-working Americans are the backbone of our country.  As I have often said, the middle class built America – and unions built the middle class.  Everything that supports a sustainable middle-class life was made possible by unions, and on Labor Day we honor all those workers – and their enduring movement – that keep our economy moving and make our Nation strong.

Today, I’m thankful all the essential workers who kept the country going as the covid-19 pandemic unleashed its devastation and who keep doing their jobs as it continues to ravish our nation. Hopefully, things will be better next year.

All the best on Labor Day.
