Labor Day – an honest thank you

Since 1882, Labor Day has been celebrated and observed. It is a national holiday where we should be more vocal about thanking our strong workforce in various industries. Many of these industries are not given much gratitude throughout the year, but it is clear that our great nation would not have achieved the success we enjoy today if it was not for our exceptional labor workforce.

Many of us only celebrate Labor Day as time off with families, without further recognition of our amazing people; factories, heavy industries, mining, oils, farming, and in never time office clerks and teachers.

For most people, it simply marks the last weekend of summer and the start of the school year.

These groups have one thing in common, the collective strength of their unions. So, Labor Day is a day where we celebrate union workers and their tireless efforts to keep the industrial machines running.

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1954

We might not agree with the union tactics, but the output is essential to feeding the great nation.

Let’s celebrate and thank our fellow Americans, and thank them for their support – especially during the many months of COVID-19. They kept us fed, shelves stocked, and farms runnings.
