Let’s not forget as we hit all the Labor Day sales at so many of the union-busting big-box stores that the day was originally intended as a celebration of the Labor movement and all the benefits it brought us. Such as

  • The 40-hour work week
  • Regulation of child labor
  • Paid holidays and sick leave
  • Requirements for safe working conditions
  • The minimum wage

Just to name a few.

Happy Labor Day.
