For many Americans, Labor Day means the end of summer and heralded the beginning of the school year. But the holiday really celebrates the social and economic achievements of American workers.
On June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.
In our changing times when most companies are advertising for help, it is good to recognize and honor the 155 million (or so) who are in the U.S. workforce! In America, we enjoy prompt, personal, and professional service in our job market.
It is our prayer that this continues to be available to all of us! Thank a worker this week!
