Thank a Union
As we head into the Labor Day Weekend, let’s remember how this holiday began. Labor Day, long thought of as the official end of summer, it became an official federal holiday in 1894. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country.
While we enjoy the three-day weekend, we should say “Thank You” to the unions who fought for child labor laws, the 8-hour work day, the 5-day work week, overtime pay, sick leave pay, social security and many, many more things that today’s workforce take for granted.
