Happy Labor Day my friends.
The last big 3-day weekend of the summer.
The idea of Labor Day is to recognize and honor the American labor movement and the ways in which American workers have contributed to the country's success over the years.
This holiday was born in response to a series of workers' strikers in the late 19th century, as workers protested against unfair working conditions.
Thousands of Americans have marched, protested and participated in strikes in order to create fairer, more equitable labor laws and workplaces – and still do today. Today we have good working conditions and I for one say it is time to get back to work.
Time for all of us to get back to high productivity. Let the fall begin and in many states children are going back to school.
For many it is the first time they have been in the classroom for over a year and I do recognize the excitement and trepidation for parents and children alike.
