Samuel Gompers, “Labor Day. What It Portends.” American Federationist. September, 1898.
To those who have the day off, enjoy it. To those that must continue to labor, we thank you.
To all, remember, it's more than just grilling or time off. It's a recognition of the work it took to get here. It's for the dream of a better work life in our future and for our posterity.
Happy Labor Day!
