Regardless of whether we work or not on Labor Day, the September holiday remains a significant cultural passing of the baton from summer to fall. As millions of Americans enjoy the day today free from the constraints of the time clock, we value the time with family, relaxation, great food, amazing sights we see. For those working on the clock, perhaps they value the increased business growth, exposure and opportunity. This drove me to consider the “value” we all share on this day as well as the 364 other days of the year.
According to the U.S.Department of Labor, the Labor Day holiday is “a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.” Labor Day is a “yearly national tribute” to the “contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.”
