Wishing you all a relaxing, fulfilling day before getting back to the grind!
From the US Dept of Labor :

#‎LaborDay‬ is about more than just barbecues and a three-day weekend. It’s a celebration of the working Americans who power our nation’s prosperity. But on this Labor Day, as we continue to recover from the great recession with a strong economic wind at our back, employers need to recognize their responsibility — to their workers and the nation — to help make sure that prosperity is broadly shared.


The History of Labor Day

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

"It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things." ~Teddy Roosevelt

"All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence." ~Martin Luther King, Jr

"Labour may be a burden and a chastisement, but it is also an honour and a glory. Without it, nothing can be accomplished." ~Samuel Smiles

Happy Labor Day 2016 to you all!

"Fires can't be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men. Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labor into pleasant tasks."
~James A. Baldwin

:laborday:
My wife came home from work yesterday and was raging about her boss. She said to me, "I'm never going to work for that man again!".

I asked her, "Why, what did he say to you?"

She said, "You're fired."

Colorado: The Second State to Adopt Labor Day
by Katie Rudolph on September 1, 2015


Denver parade
On March 15, 1887, Colorado's Sixth General Assembly passed a law designating the first Monday in September as a holiday honoring workers. Less than a month earlier, Oregon had been the first state to create an official labor holiday. President Grover Cleveland signed legislation that made Labor Day a federal holiday on June 28, 1894.

The Rocky Mountain News from September 6, 1887, covered Denver's Labor Day festivities. It was reported that around 2,000 people — "representatives of the various labor organizations and those in sympathy with them" — attended.
