Happy Labor Day – or is it Happy Laborious Day?



When Labor Day was created, in 1882 and celebrated in New York City for the first time, it was meant to be a day of thanks for the workers who made the country’s economy run.


But, I often wonder what in the heck are we celebrating today?  What kind of Labor Day, a day off for workers, is now just another day of work for most workers.  Of, if you’re lucky enough to work in an office, for the government (state and federal), the post office or a school, you’ve got the day off.  However, how many workers have to work in order for the rest of us who want to spend money at the sales?


What kind of a “holiday” is it, if the majority of people still have to work?  Should they just call it “Sales Day”?  Let me know what you think, and if you’ve got to work on Labor Day.
