Most of us in America think of Labor Day as the end of summer. It’s not, we still have 3 weeks of summer left. Don’t rush it people! Here in Michigan the kids go back to school the day after Labor Day, so I can see how it came to be looked at this way.
Because it’s the unofficial last day of summer, Labor Day is also known for barbeques, picnics, beaches and ball games. Oddly enough, it also brings to mind sales and school shopping. I always feel terrible for the workers making minimum wage that have to work today while everyone else not only have the day off, but are most likely being difficult customers for the minimum wage worker.
Anyway, I thought I’d give my readers a history lesson on Labor Day. What better place to learn about history than the History Channel? Enjoy!
I’ll be back tomorrow with the monthly round-up. Enjoy the holiday!
