Although it started out as a celebration for organized labor following the bloody Pullman strike, Labor Day has come to mean so many different things to many people. No longer just a celebration of unionized workers, it has come to represent the labors and achievements of all American workers in all walks of life and in these troubled times the plight and struggles of our countrymen who are without jobs and have lost so much.
For some, it’s the end of summer and the last chance to go on that family outing or it may be the end of summer break and the return to classes. And many will celebrate the return of football season.
But for whatever reasons you celebrate this Labor Day, I wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday.
