A Labour Day is an annual holiday celebrated all over the world that resulted from efforts of the labour union movement, to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers.

The celebration of Labour Day began in 1882 and has its origins in the eight hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest.

Hey did you notice that they employers are now asking you to work more than eight hours a day. If you don’t they kind of look down on you.  They need to be reminded of why labor day was created.

Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend.
