Have a safe Labor Day!
What it means today:
Somewhere along the line, Labor Day lost it's meaning. Today the holiday stands for little more than the end of summer, start of school, weekend-long sales and maybe a BBQ or parade. In the past it was political. In todays society, many politicians do their best to avoid the mention of organized labor maybe giving an obligatory nod that abstract entity, "the American worker." Do your best to teach the youth of today the true meaning of the holiday!
