Labor Day–2018

Today is the first Monday of September and that means that it is Labor Day….most other countries celebrate it on the First of May but we here must be different.

Because it is a holiday I will be doing the usual stuff with family….grilling and a little fun…..

Since this will be my last post today and I do like some history I offer up a couple of videos on the history of the celebration of Labor Day….

A wee bit more history for you……

Many people worked hard to see that Americans could make a living wage (some say we are not there yet)…..as for my musical interlude is songs from the workers struggles of the early days of the 20th century.

I do hope that everyone has a wonderful day off and be well and be safe and please drink responsibly….
