Are You One of Those People Who Will be Laboring on Labor Day?

It’s a holiday to recognize working people by giving them a day off, yet there are still people who have to clock in today. Are you one of them?

Today, Americans will celebrate Labor Day, a federal holiday that started in the late 19th century with protests by union workers.

It’s also a day in which its significance has changed over the years, as noted by businessdailynews.com, which explained how many Americans think of it as an official end to summer rather than a holiday for workers.

And, while office staff, corporate employees and government workers all get the day off, there still are thousands of Americans who will clock in.

Supermarkets, department stores, restaurants and bars have been opening their doors on Labor Day in recent years, meaning just another day of work for those employees.

Are you one of those employees? Are you working this Labor Day?

Ah, yes! Just saw my husband off to work too. But taking it easy all the same.

Ask any, I mean any liberal if they are better off than they were four years ago! Ask for a simple yes or no, not a rambling spin answer that they will try to give you to "deflect" the question and answer. They can not and will not answer your question because they know, deep down that Barack Obama, their hero, has failed them.

Yes, today is just another work day for me. Up at 4am. Public Safety knows no holidays.

People don't seem to stop committing crimes, no matter what day of the year it is, so yep, I'm working!

Yup. "Labor Day" is just another day of labor over here. Go Dawgs! Beat the Puddy-Tats!

Went to Waffle House where those folks still have to serve the public, but made sure I gave her a nice tip. I hope others did the same. Might make their labor day work anyway day a little brighter.
